NFL rumors: Maurice Jones-Drew visits Steelers


The Pittsburgh Steelers had shown initial interest in Green Bay Packers running back James Starks as a change of pace running back to Le’Veon Bell, but Starks eventually re-signed with the Packers.

Now, the Steelers are turning their attention to a different running back who has been considered one of the best in the league just a few years ago.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jones-Drew is set to visit with the Steelers this week. The visit could come as early as today.

Jones-Drew is certainly slowing down in his career, but he is talented enough that he would be the kind of running back that the team would need to complement their current starter.
