The Steelers are hosting some free agents today, starting with LaRod Stephens-Howling, but not the kind that will make the fanbase sit up and take notice. Or even wake up, really.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the team is hosting Arizona running back LaRod Stephens-Howling, along with 49ers linebacker Tavares Gooden and Texans guard Antoine Caldwell.
Of the lot of them, Stephens-Howling is the most interesting, since he’s unlike the rest of the backs on the Steelers roster at the moment. He’s more of a third down back/returner, and would fill the role they envisioned for the released Chris Rainey.
The Pitt product has been a solid special teamer and part-time player for the Cardinals.
