Steelers Sign Mewelde Moore

The Steelers have re-signed running back Mewelde Moore. Moore will presumably act as a third-down back behind Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman. The Steelers didn't really have a third-down type of back, other than 2011 seventh-round pick Baron Batch, who has been impressive so far in training camp. Batch still stands a decent chance of making the final roster, but this move will affect his playing time. The Steelers appear to be set at running back now.

Moore rushed 33 times for 99 yards last year to go with 26 catches for 205 yards. His best season with the Steelers was his first, in 2008, when he had 588 yards rushing and 320 yards receiving. His yards per carry have gradually slipped since he started his career with the Minnesota Vikings, but he's still only 29 and is pretty reliable catching passes out of the backfield.
