Jonathan Dwyer could be a popular man


The Pittsburgh Steelers released running back Jonathan Dwyer as part of their final cuts to get down to the 53-man roster, but he may not be in the unemployment line for long. Dwyer spent Week One of the regular season watching the games from home, but after the way some of the Week One games played out his phone could be blowing up.

First, there is his former team.

The Steelers lost back up running back LaRod Stephens-Howling for the season with a torn ACL, so they could use a boost in the back field.

Another option could be the New York Giants, who watched starter David Wilson cough up the ball on multiple occassions on Sunday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys. Dwyer did have ball security issues of his own before getting released, but Giants coach Tom Coughlin could give Dwyer’s agent a call if Wilson will be in the doghouse for an extended period of time.

It’s not always fun being in the unemployment line, but this is a great time for Dwyer to be looking for a job.
