🏈 Najee Harris, along with running backs across the league, are not happy with how the position has been devalued. Le’Veon Bell held out for an entire season five years ago to make a stand for running backs, and the market really hasn’t changed since then. Former Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Vince Williams tweeted on Monday night, “Le’Veon said this, and despite initial skepticism, it’s become clear. Pay the player, not the position.”

That’s one way of looking at it. However, running backs have not aged well in recent years. Bell and Todd Gurley are two perfect examples. The owners look at it as a supply and demand issue, so it’s hard to imagine things changing anytime soon.

🎂 Happy Birthday to former Steelers quarterback Dick Shiner, born on July 18, 1942 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Shiner started 20 games for the Steelers from 1968-1969, posting a 25-27 touchdown-interception ratio. He was Chuck Noll’s first quarterback during his Hall of Fame career with the Steelers. The Steelers went 1-13 in 1969 and were in desperate need of a quarterback as Shiner was just a career journeyman. With the first overall pick in the 1970 NFL Draft, the Steelers selected future Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw. Shiner was traded to the New York Giants in April of 1970 for running back John “Frenchy” Fuqua and linebacker Henry Davis.
🎥 Vintage NFL on Twitter posted a highlight clip of the Steelers’ 14-13 win over Washington in Week 2 of the 1997 season.
