Jonathan Dwyer News
Dwyer will spend the next month training at Pete Bommarito Performance Systems, the same facility where Maurice Jones-Drew, Matt Forte, LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jonathan Stewart and others, including teammates Antonio Brown and Lawrence Timmons, work out, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Dwyer has battled both weight and conditioning issues since joining the NFL in 2010, but appears to be motivated by the opportunity presented by Rashard Mendenhall's ACL tear. "I am just realizing how much it takes to get where you are in this league and how hard you have to work and push yourself," Dwyer said. "This is my year to prove something to myself, the league, to the organization, that I am worth more than what I was." Slated to back-up Isaac Redman this season, an in-shape Dwyer could push for more snaps.
