    Maurice Jones Drew, James Harrison to the Steelers?

    Maurice Jones-Drew to visit Pittsburgh Steelers

    "Along with the Steelers, the Jets reportedly have "serious interest" in Jones-Drew, but the Steelers would make for the more intriguing fit. Pairing this one-time bell cow with the ascendant Le'Veon Bell would give Pittsburgh its finest duo of runners in many moons.

    UPDATE: After visiting the Steelers on Wednesday, Jones-Drew will return to the team's facility Thursday, NFL Media's Albert Breer reported, per a team source. "

    Maurice Jones-Drew doesn’t add up for Steelers

    "James Harrison told everyone the other night that he would love to return and play for the
    Steelers, and the Steelers are indeed considering that option.

    The Steelers are extremely thin and relatively unproven at outside linebacker. They wanted Harrison back last season at more than $3 million. They might be able to get him back now at the veteran minimum in which he would earn $955,000 in salary plus a $65,000 roster bonus and count only $635,000 against the salary cap in 2014.

    The Steelers really have nothing to lose. Right now, they have only Chris Carter as any kind of experienced backup on the outside (Lawrence Timmons can play there, as he has in the past, if they really need him to). If they sign Harrison and he shows in training camp he no longer has it, they would be out that $65,000 signing bonus.

    Here is what Jones-Drew wants: Money, and a place to start. With the Steelers, he would get neither. They have their horse in Le’Veon Bell and are looking for someone to spell him, especially since they have no experienced halfbacks under contract behind him."

    I would welcome Harrison back on the cheap. MJD would also be an upgrade at back up RB, and a great insurance policy on Bell.

    If MJD wants money and a starting spot then he won't be coming here
