PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – With free agent running back Maurice Jones-Drew leaving his Steelers visit without a contract, the Steelers have turned their attention to another potential candidate: to back-up starter Le’Veon Bell.

According to Marc Sessler of, the Steelers will be visiting with former New England Patriot running back LaGarrette Blount.

The controversial back punched his ticket this off-season with an impressive playoff performance against the Colts in which he hit paydirt four times while rushing for 166 yards on 24 carries.

The 27-year-old running back rushed for 772 yards last year on 153 attempts and 7 touchdowns after coming to the Patriots from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
