So he uses David Johnson, who lines up mostly in the backfield and acts as a poor man's FB. Over the course of 2 years, Johnson has caught 6 passes.

I have no beef with Johnson and do think he's improved as a blocker. But what the hell? He obviously isn't acting like a TE, doesn't have the receptions and seems to start in the backfield. Why not just get a true FB and get those lead blocks we expect?
In other words, Arians is a moron.

teh season is done. we dont know when the next season will begin, and this is the 1st steelers FA domino to fall.

I wouldn't mind seeing us pick up Kuhn. I always liked him andknow he fits that hybrid FB/TE/HB role that Ariens likes perfectly. I think he'd be a nice pick up. Not sure how much longer Memo is going to be around and Redman/Mendenhall can handle all of those duties anyway.
