PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed running back Verron Haynes to a one-year contract on Monday.
Haynes, a fifth-round draft pick in 2002, played seven games in 2006 before hurting his knee against Oakland on Oct. 29 and being cut in March. Haynes rushed for 738 yards and three touchdowns on 174 carries in 60 games for the Steelers.
Haynes has been rehabilitating his injured knee at the Steelers practice facility this year. He is expected to compete for a job as the team's third-down back with veterans Najeh Davenport and Kevan Barlow, a former Pitt running back who was cut by the New York Jets in February.
