Steeler RB Jonathan Dwyer will be taking an extra step toward earning his backup role to Isaac Redman.
Prodded by two of the NFL’s best running backs in Maurice Jones-Drew and Matt Forte — they share the same agent — Dwyer will spend the next four weeks in North Miami Beach, Fla., at Pete Bommarito Performance Systems ensuring he will arrive at St. Vincent College on July 25 in the best shape of his life.
LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Ahmad Bradshaw and Jonathan Stewart also work out with Bommarito. So do some of Dwyer’s teammates, including Antonio Brown and Lawrence Timmons.
Dwyer's weight has been an issue for him, causing him to get drafted lower as well as keeping in off the field and in the doghouse.
He's set to be Redman's backup this season, and if that position holds true, he's just an injury away from being a very usable fantasy option.
