The Facts: In desperate need of a feature back with Le'Veon Bell's immediate future uncertain, the Steelers are working out former Texans, Vikings and Browns running back Tate, ESPN reported Tuesday morning.
Diehards Line: If the visit goes well, they are expected to sign the 26-year-old, once thought to be the best running back on the open market back in March. Some inside the Steelers organization are doubtful that Bell will make an appearance on Saturday in prime time against the Ravens, which would make the need for an all-purpose back like Tate that much greater. In 11 games this season, Tate has 119 attempts for 371 yards and four touchdowns. He would likely enter a platoon with rookies Dri Archer and Josh Harris, who took a bulk of the carries in Bell's absence on Sunday.
