Coach: Jonathan Dwyer 'exactly' what team expected
by Larry Hartstein |

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Jonathan Dwyer, who got a goal-line touchdown run Saturday against the Vikings, is "exactly" what the team anticipated when it signed him, reports "Jon can bounce it outside; he has deceptive speed for a big man," Arians said.

Dwyer is competing with Stepfan Taylor for opportunities behind starter Andre Ellington.

Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer will have distinct roles
by Larry Hartstein |

Although Stepfan Taylor has been running ahead of Jonathan Dwyer in training camp, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the running backs are not competing for the backup role behind Andre Ellington. Instead, Arians plans to use each back based on his strengths.

"We have all the confidence in the world in Stepfan and Jonathan," Arians said. "Jonathan had a big, long run (Tuesday) and Stef did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an ongoing thing, and we’ll use them both.

"We won’t really have a two and a three. They’ll have roles and go into games with roles so everybody knows exactly what to expect. And when your number’s called to increase your role, you better be ready."

Arians happy with two surprise running backs
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Andre Ellington is pretty much locked into the Cardinals' starting running back job heading into training camp, but he won't hog all of the carries. Cards coach Bruce Arians told ESPN that backups Jonathan Dwyer and Robert Hughes have each been a pleasant surprise so far this offseason

"(Dwyer) is in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise." 

As for Hughes, the former Colts backup rusher, Arians called him "outstanding," citing his toughness, mentality and skill set as strengths. Not only is he a load on his feet but he can also run good routes and catch passes. 

Both have a chance to make the Cardinals final roster.

Cardinals add Jonathan Dwyer for one year
by Chris Towers |

The Cardinals beefed up their running back depth in free agency, adding former Steelers back Jonathan Dwyer on a one-year deal Wednesday, according to Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Dwyer disappointed despite appearing in a career-high 15 games for the Steelers in 2013. His production fell off across the board, as he finished with 197 yards on 49 carries, without a touchdown.

Steelers facing decisions on three running backs
by Larry Hartstein |

The Steelers will try to re-sign free agent running backs Jonathan Dwyer and LaRod Stephens-Howling but not Felix Jones, reports Dwyer would be an ideal backup to Le'Veon Bell but might leave for a chance to play more, the report said.

Stephens-Howling must prove he's healthy following ACL surgery. If he's the only one who returns, the Steelers would seek to bolster the position through free agency or the draft, the report said.
