Vikings: Mewelde Moore Anyone? Steelers: Yes, Please

As was mentioned in the previous post about Ben Roethlisberger's contract extension, there are rumors that the Steelers are close to signing Vikings RB/KR Mewelde Moore. If so, Tomlin and the versatile Tulane product would be reunited from their days in Minny. We'll take a closer look at Moore's career and abilities if he is signed, but I did find this short video that showcases some of his athleticism and decisiveness as a runner. The first half of the video are his runs, the second half is of Chester Taylor.

Granted, these are just a few random highlights, but I'd be thrilled if we added this type of weapon to our arsenal. The return game would be upgraded a touch. Not in the Devon Hester, Darren Sproles type of way, but I do think he'd provide more of a spark than Rossum. More importantly, I think Moore would give Big Ben a great outlet receiver to check down to frequently instead of holding the ball excessively long in hopes of making a play down the field. Keep your fingers crossed. Get it done Steelers!
