Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - The Steelers kicked off training camp by signing veteran running back Wendell Smallwood to a one-year contract.  After playing at West Virginia from 2013-2015, Smallwood spent three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and the 2019 season with the Washington Football Team.

In 52 NFL games, Smallwood rushed for 931 yards, a 4.0 average.

His signing gives the Steelers considerable depth at running back.  He joins James Conner, Benny Snell, Jr, Jaylen Samuels, Kerrith Whyte, Trey Edmunds and rookie Anthony McFarland on the training camp roster.
