PITTSBURGH (AP) -Free agent running back Mewelde Moore signed a three-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday.
Moore spent the first four seasons of his career with the Minnesota Vikings. He has played in 54 career games, including 11 starts, as a running back and kickoff and punt returner.
A fourth-round draft pick out of Tulane in 2004, Moore has 1,285 career rushing yards on 264 attempts with one rushing touchdown and 116 receptions for 1,093 yards with three touchdowns.
Moore could compete for a spot returning kicks for the Steelers now that Allen Rossum is in San Francisco. He also could give the team insurance behind Najeh Davenport if Pro Bowl running back Willie Parker doesn't come back strong from a broken right leg.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was the Vikings' defensive coordinator before coming to Pittsburgh a year ago.
