Steelers Open Window for Benny Snell Return

Steelers Open Window for Benny Snell Return

PITTSBURGH-- Why would the Pittsburgh Steelers launch Master Teague III simply 1 day before the start of Organized Group Activities and, eventually, minicamp? The 23-year-old wasn't a sleeper in the eyes of many fans. Entering his 2nd year with the group, the initial being reduced by injuries, Teague was considered as the possible 3rd running back in Pittsburgh this period. Now, he's browsing for his 3rd NFL house, and also on the other hand, the Steelers need one more running back. The existing roster holds Najee Harris, Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren, Alfonzo Graham and also Jason Huntley. Last summer, the Steelers brought 6 running backs to training camp. They just held 5 throughout OTAs as well as minicamp, with a 6th signing up with in Latrobe. Possibly that's their plan this period. Or, possibly, they're opening up the door for Benny Snell Jr.'s return. Snell stays on the totally free agent market well after the NFL Draft. The 25-year-old took a go back on the deepness graph last season, being benched for Jaylen Warren. But when contacted in Week 12 due to injuries, the professional competed 62 backyards and also a touchdown, putting the infraction on his back in a success over the Indianapolis Colts. Snell wouldn't return to Pittsburgh with a possibility to defeat Warren, however rather complete with McFarland, Graham and also Huntley for the final lineup place. As well as what the former fourth-round pick brings is worthy of a place on some rosters - consisting of the 's capacities on special groups as well as in pass protection were constantly remarkable. It earned him the upper hand over McFarland last summer and also can be the reason Pittsburgh brings him back for one more year. Permitting McFarland, Graham as well as Huntley to compete for the final place really feels very Steelers-like. Head instructor Mike Tomlin has actually always held a strong passion in McFarland's skillset, as well as the Steelers attempted last summer to use him as a functional player out of the backfield. He can really potentially be the team's top alternative for they decided not to revive Snell, it wouldn't be excessively shocking or truly have much influence on the roster. But improving 2 lineup areas, including a running back, does not come without concerns.
