Former Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew is going to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to ESPN.

He averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry.

The Steelers don't have much salary-cap space, just over $2 million.

They tried to get running back James Starks, but he re-signed with the Green Bay Packers.

Jones-Drew led the league in rushing in 2011 with 1,606 yards. He held out in 2012 and then suffered through an injury-plagued season. He had 803 yards rushing this season.
