"The Bus" has been parked, "Duce" could be cut loose, and Willie could be the last man standing.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking at running backs this off-season. Jerome Bettis has retired, Duce Staley, though healthy the
second-half of the season was virtually inactive, while Willie Parker
carried the bulk of the workload throughout the season.
Releasing Staley remains a possibility in Pittsburgh. Along with Bettis'
retirement, the move could leave the Steelers relatively thin on the depth
chart at running back.
Enter Wali Lundy from Virginia. Lundy sports good size (5-11 ½ - 214-lbs)
and is believed to have the physical attributes to potentially become an
every down back (was a receiver in high-school) at the professional level.
Approximately 15 teams have talked with Lundy at the Indianapolis Combine,
with the Steelers being one of them.
Lundy is tough and durable. He's a good inside runner who has displayed a
style which is compatible with the Pittsburgh offensive scheme. Lundy is one
player to keep an eye on as the off-season progresses and the Steelers look
to solidify the offensive backfield.
