Steelers to visit with ex-Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount Sunday night

With a cold running backs market, solid players like Blount are available, and the Steelers appear interested.

The Steelers aren't done looking for experienced back-up running backs. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun is reporting the Steelers will visit with ex-Patriots and Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount.

The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, and Wilson also noted via Twitter the Patriots have remained interested in Blount throughout free agency.

So what does that mean, exactly? Another attempt to establish a market by hanging out with the Steelers for a bit? Or is it simply a matter of timing on the Steelers' end, with Pro Days and other free agents to evaluate?

Blount was the centerpiece of an excellent game plan in the AFC Divisional playoffs when he rushed 24 times for 166 yards and a Patriots postseason record four rushing touchdowns in their win over the Colts. He then had six yards on five attempts in a loss to Denver in the AFC Championship game.
