Najee Harris led the NFL in touches last season and became the first rookie in league history
to have 300+ carries and 70+ catches. He served as the workhorse of all workhorses.
Former Steeler JJ Harris has discussed the Steelers' plan to take off plays from
his workload by giving the ball to RBs Bell and Conner during the game.
Rich Eisen asked Harris if he could make 400 tackles if the team needs him to win.
"I'll get 500 (expletive)," he responded. "Listen, I didn't have an issue with it. It was the media who had an issue with it.
I told them every game, 'If this is the way we're winning, I can carry the load.'
I train to carry loads. It's not something that I haven't done before. I did it in college, high school, and NFL."
As a rookie, Harris rushed 307 times for 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had 74 catches for 467 yards and three additional scores.
Harris will do whatever is asked of him to achieve the goal, no matter who wins the quarterback battle.
