Conflicting reports on Steelers, Tolbert

By Jamison Hensley

There are conflicting reports on whether the Steelers are interested in Chargers free-agent running back Mike Tolbert.

The San Diego Union-Tribune suggested that the Steelers were the leaders for Tolbert, but the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette shot down that notion, saying there was no visit and that it's "not happening."

We'll see how this one plays out, but I'm in favor of the Steelers pursuing Tolbert. He's a valuable role player who would complement Isaac Redman and would presumably come at an affordable cost.
