Steelers target from Buccaneers: RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn

Another roster that doesn’t have an ample amount of talent to try and poach, I will once again go to the struggling running back category. If you have made it this far, you should know this story. The Steelers third running back is very much in question, and while the names they have on the roster could work out, they could also feasibly add someone outside of the organization.

Ke’Shawn Vaughn was, at one point, seen as the potential running back of the future for the Buccaneers, but he has failed to make much of an impact so far in his career. He has been relegated to spot backup work and only has one career start to his name. He hasn’t been horrible with the ball in his hands, but he hasn’t been dynamic either.

What makes him an attractive third back is his special teams work. While his career likely hasn’t gone how he hoped it would, he has become a core special teams player on coverage units. That will be required for a third back in Pittsburgh, so he still has some value. Again, Tampa Bay is filled with poachable talent, but Vaughn makes the most sense.
