The Pittsburgh Steelers have an obvious RB1 in Najee Harris, but everyone knows how susceptible the running back position is to injury. It’s always good to have multiple plans when it comes to depth.

The Steelers have a solid backup in Benny Snell Jr., but that shouldn’t stop them from looking for opportunities to get deeper. When you combine that with the limited experience behind Snell, it makes more sense.

It turns out Pittsburgh is in fact still looking to improve their depth. Per ESPN‘s Field Yates, the Steelers worked out two veteran running backs in Jalen Richard and Wayne Gallman on Friday.

Both players bring veteran experience to the table, as well as pass-catching abilities. Richard caught 160 passes from 2016-2019, but the emergence of Josh Jacobs as a three-down back really cut into his role over the last two years. In all, Richard finished his Las Vegas Raiders career with 191 receptions for 1,590 yards and three touchdowns over the course of 87 games.

Gallman has rushed 366 times for 1,548 yards (4.2 ypc) and nine touchdowns, while also recording 81 receptions for 519 yards and two touchdowns since 2017.

Per the team’s website, the roster currently sits at 90 players, so the Steelers would have to make a corresponding move, such as some type of release or injury designation that opens up a spot in case they decide to sign one of the two aforementioned players.
