After losing running back LaRod Stephens-Howling for the season with a knee injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to re-sign running back Jonathan Dwyer.
#Steelers will re-sign RB Jonathan Dwyer

Dwyer was waived during the final round of cuts over a week ago and the odd man out after the team acquired Felix Jones from the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade half way through the preseason.
The decision is not a surprising one as Dwyer knows the offense as well as the Steelers next opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Steelers will save quite a bit of money this time around with Dwyer, who was originally set to earn $1.323 million had he remained on the roster for the season opener.
