Arizona Cardinals RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor will both be used to spell RB Andre Ellington this season, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
Huddle Up: With the 5-10, 195-pound Ellington not built to carry a full-size workload, it's looking like a three-headed RBBC in the desert. Ugh.

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer received praise from head coach Bruce Arians during organized team activities for his pass-catching abilities. Dwyer also is effective in pass blocking, which is something that Arians covets in his offense.
Huddle Up: Dwyer only had 27 receptions in 4 seasons in Pittsburgh, but his pass-blocking prowess could earn him some extra offensive snaps in the desert if second-year backs Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor struggle with protection.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said RB Jonathan Dwyer may see more playing time. Tomlin said that Dwyer has also been a spark plug on special teams.
Huddle Up: Dwyer only has 18 total touches since rookie Le'Veon Bell made his debut in Week 6, and while he doesn't have any fantasy value now, he'll be the main man in the Steel City should Bell go down again.

Free-agent RB Jonathan Dwyer cleared waivers Sunday, Sept. 1, and he is now an unrestricted free agent.
Huddle Up: There are some running back-needy teams out there, but as the Steelers were one of them and they still kicked Dwyer to the curb he may languish a while on the waiver wire before finding work.

The Pittsburgh Steelers released RB Jonathan Dwyer.
Huddle Up: This comes as one of the more surprising cuts considering Le'Veon Bell is dealing with a foot injury. Reports say the Steelers grew tired with Dwyer's lack of work ethic and showed him the door. This is a big boost for Isaac Redman's short-term fantasy value until Bell returns. Redman will see most of the early down and goal-line work, while Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling get sprinkled in as well.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer said he has lost 25-30 pounds down to 230 pounds.
Huddle Up: The presumption is that a trimmer Dwyer will be a quicker Dwyer as he competes for carries in the Pittsburgh backfield. It's worth watching during training camp to see if that holds true, as the Steelers' running back gig is hardly set in stone.
