Report: Steelers are shopping running back Jonathan Dwyer

Daniel Jeremiah's report Saturday suggest the Steelers are looking to deal RB Jonathan Dwyer.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah is reporting the Steelers are trying to trade running back Jonathan Dwyer.

The Steelers have an abundance of running backs now, and it's logical that Dwyer could be one of them. Frankly, though, if they're looking to trade one of them, it could be any of them. Dwyer and Isaac Redman are both under one-year contracts in restricted free agency. They just signed LaRod Stephens-Howling as well. They also have Baron Batch on the roster and just drafted Le'Veon Bell.

Why Dwyer? It could be because he's the marketable one. Teams were high on him when the Steelers took him in the sixth round of the 2010 Draft but an alleged failed drug test and a lack of consistent carries in college dropped his stock.
