With the May Eighth NFL draft looming ever closer, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to fill a hole in their team before the NFL draft in May; particularly they are looking at finding a veteran running back.
Maurice Jones-Drew is just one potential running back for the Steelers, they are also looking at LaGarette Blounts.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Two possible candidates that have recently visited the Steelers are Maurice Jones-Drew, formerly of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and former New England Patriots LaGarette Blounts.
Jones-Drew has Jaguar records for most career rushing touchdowns (63), most rushing touchdowns in a single season 15-2009, and most rushing yards in a single season (1,606 in 2011). He is also receiving interest from several other teams including the Patriots, the New York Jets, and the Miami Dolphins.

Arthur Moats has also been signed on for a year by the Steelers. Moats was a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills for four seasons before his release in 2013, where he accrued 141 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Head Coach Mike Tomlin is also switching up his coaching staff, bringing in former coach for the Tennessee Titans and Hall of Famer Mike Munchak to coach the offensive line.
Pittsburgh has a 15 pick in the first round, as well as three consolatory selections, including a pick in the third round. "I was expecting it, but at the same time it's like Christmas - it's great, particularly this time of year when you're out evaluating talent. You feel real good about the opportunity to add three more guys who could be significant," said Tomlin.
The Steelers need some new talent to push them over an 8-8 season last year where they went 4-2 in their division and 6-6 in conference.
