Having lost one former Steelers running back this off-season when Rashard Mendenhall announced his retirement, the Arizona Cardinals are reportedly adding another.
Free agent Jonathan Dwyer has signed with the Cardinals.

Looking to rebound after a year in which he only had 197 yards on 49 carries, Dwyer has shown signs of promise in his first three seasons. At age 24 there is still potential for him to break through: on 230 carries he has averaged a fine 4.2 YPC. Earlier this off-season it sounded like Dwyer would return to Pittsburgh, but he is now headed to Arizona to re-unite with Bruce Arians.
