LeGarrette Blount will wear No. 27 for the Steelers

Newest Steelers running back to wear a very familiar number.

According to the Steelers, LeGarrette Blount will wear No. 27 when he steps onto the field for the first time in Black and Gold.

Many of you remember the most recent player to wear this number, but does anyone remember some past players to wear it?

Joe Burnett, CB, wore it before Jonathan Dwyer, and before him it was Anthony Smith. Remember him? He was Mr. Gaurantee.

The great Dick Haley wore it back in the '60's.

Let's all hope that Blount will be better than Dwyer and Burnett. Although, Dwyer was the YPC leader for the Steelers the last couple of seasons. Somehow he got a bad rap from most fans and media pundits.

Perhaps Blount will show up to camp in shape, tear things up and dispel any questions about his being an upgrade over the last No. 27.
