Greg Bell Steelers

The Steelers hosting five players, including four running backs for tryouts on Monday. Those running backs included Greg Bell, Stevie Scott, John Lovett, and ZaQuandre White. Pittsburgh hosted long snapper Bradley Robinson for a workout as well in addition to those three running backs.

White played with the USFL champions, the Birmingham Stallions, with running backs C.J. Marable and Ricky Person. He racked up 128 yards and 2 touchdowns in the season on 29 attempts. He added 81 receiving yards and another receiving touchdown to that resume during the championship run with the Stallions.

White has played in the NFL before with the Miami Dolphins. Coming out of the draft in the 2022 NFL Draft, White was signed as an undrafted free agent and failed to stick with the team. Coming out of South Carolina, White ran for 583 yards on 88 carries in 12 games during his redshirt senior season. He spent a year in JUCO after moving to outside linebacker at Florida State, but moved back to running back. South Carolina then picked White up out of the JUCO market.

Meanwhile, Scott played in the USFL for the Michigan Panthers. While with them, Scott racked up 295 yards and a touchdown on 78 attempts. Coming out of Indiana in the 2021 NFL Draft, Scott played three years with the Hoosiers. He racked up 2543 yards rushing and 30 touchdowns while adding two touchdowns and 383 receiving yards over his three seasons in the Big 10 with the team. Scott has been with the New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos during his time with the NFL.

Next, Lovett comes out of Penn State. He spent time with the Carolina Panthers during his first stint in the NFL but is trying to find a foothold back into the league at this time. During his time at college with the Nittany Lions and Baylor, he put up 1980 yards and 17 touchdowns over five years in the NCAA.

The last running back the Steelers hosted was Greg Bell. Bell came out of San Diego State and had a stint in 2022 with the Detroit Lions. But was injured and suffered a hamstring in training camp. He would then come back for 2023 but the team waived him back on July 22nd. Over his college career at three different stops, Bell racked up over 4000 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns.

Lastly, long snapper Bradley Robinson comes out of Ohio State in this year’s class. He suffered an injury and missed the last three games, but Robinson has worked as one of the better long snappers in college football during his tenure with the Buckeyes. The Steelers have two long snappers in Rex Sunahara and Christian Kuntz.
