Post Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette Tweeted Tuesday the Steelers are hosting former Pitt running back Ray Graham for a workout.
He was released Nov. 15 when the Texans signed linebacker Ricky Sapp.
Graham hasn't played in an NFL game, but had a productive collegiate career. He tore his ACL midway through the Panthers' 2011 season, but rebounded with a decent 2012 campaign.
Clearly, any interest in Graham would be for a practice squad spot. The active roster would appear to be full, especially at running back. Rookie Le'Veon Bell has averaged over 20 touches a game since returning in Week 4 from injury.
Graham is a player with whom the Steelers are obviously familiar with his time in Pittsburgh. Stashing him on their practice squad and signing him after the season to a future's deal might not be a bad idea.
