Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network is reporting Saturday morning on Twitter that the Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to trade running back Jonathan Dwyer.
Dwyer, the Steelers sixth-round draft pick in 2010, is considered to be the more marketable running back on the roster currently, but is also only under contract for 2013 after signing a one-year restricted tender in the amount of $1.323 million.
The Steelers drafted Michigan State running back Le\’Veon Bell in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft on Friday and they also added free agent LaRod Stephens-Howling to the roster on Friday in addition.
Neither Dwyer nor Isaac Redman really have much trade value right now and the Steelers would be doing good to get a seventh round draft pick for either of them being as neither are signed past the 2013 season.
UPDATE: Take this for what it is worth: Scout Dave-Te Thomas emailed me to tell me Dwyer is actively being shopped & Denver wants him for Joe Mays.
UPDATE TWO: The details of Mays contract show a base due in 2013 of $4 million, so you can scratch that as an option. 2014 $3.5 million
