Todman Finds New Home, Joins Pittsburgh Steelers
A day after being cut by the Carolina Panthers, it seems that former Dartmouth High School standout Jordan Todman has found himself a new home, with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
According to a post on Steelers.com, the team has scooped up the running back, less than 24 hours after he was released by the Panthers.
Todman joins a team that is thin at the running back spot, especially for week one, as Pittsburgh's top option, Le'Veon Bell, will miss the first game of the year due to a suspension.
The fourth year back out of Connecticut can add depth to the Steelers past just week one, as he will add a passing threat and a good burst of speed out of the backfield.
In 33 career games Todman has rushed for 450 yards on 111 carries and caught 40 passes for 314 yards.
Todman will now play his first game of the season against his hometown team as the Steelers are set to visit the New England Patriots on Thursday for the opening night of the 2015 NFL season.
