PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – The Steelers’ South Side facility has been a revolving door for potential NFL free agents the team is interested in this offseason.

Mike Tomlin has now weighed in on the position he wants to see the team focus on.

Tomlin met with the media on Sunday at the NFL Annual Meetings and talked about the team’s need for running back depth behind starter Le’Veon Bell. Kevin Patra of NFL Network outlined some of Tomlin’s thoughts.

The Steelers recently spent two days meeting with former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew and have a meeting with former New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount later this week.

Jones-Drew is reportedly seeking a contract that will pay him $3.5 million per season, likely pricing him out of the Steelers’ price range unless he comes down.  Blount could be a potential fit for the Steelers though and more should be revealed on that front once the team meets with him.

Patra’s article also has a quote from General Manager Kevin Colbert on the team’s interest level in free agent James Harrison, who has said he’d like to return to the team.
