Breaking: Barlow Visits Steelers

ESPN 1250's Mark Madden has reported that former Peabody HS, Pitt, 49ers, and Jets RB Kevan Barlow visited the Pittsburgh Steelers today at their South Side headquarters.

If the Steelers interview doesn't go well, he can always apply at the South Side Cheesecake Factory
Barlow became expendable in New York when the Jets traded for disgruntled Bears RB Thomas Jones this offseason. Barlow's best season was 2003 with the Niners, when he ran for 1,024 yards and 6 TDs on 201 carries (5.1/carry).
With the Jets last season, Barlow split time with Leon Washington and Cedric Houston, and his production suffered. Barlow went for just 370 yards on 131 carries (2.8/per), to go with 6 TDs.
The 6'1", 234-pound Barlow has a well-earned reputation as a back who wants to be "the man". It would be interesting to see how he fits in behind incumbents Fleet William Parker and Najeh Davenport.

One word of caution to Steeler coaches: if you and Barlow don't see eye-to-eye, there's a slight chance he will compare you to Adolf Hitler, as he did to 49ers coach Mike Nolan.
