The Dolphins have signed Pead, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

After making attempts to add C.J. Anderson and Chris Johnson to their backfield mix, the Dolphins will now add Pead to the depth mix behind Jay Ajayi, but his addition is not likely to be the team's last move to fortify the running back position. The 26-year-old -- who was a 2012 second-round pick by the Rams -- was limited to two carries for three yards in two games last season, and he thus has much to prove before approaching fantasy consideration.

The Steelers have released Pead, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

To replace Pead as a depth RB option, the Steelers have promoted Fitzgerald Toussaint from their practice squad to the team's active roster.

Pead is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Pead, who was just signed this week for depth, had a small chance to play behind DeAngelo Williams in this game, but he is not on the active roster.

Pead signed with the Steelers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Pead's signing unfortunately coincides with star Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) being placed on season-ending injured reserve. With Bell out, veteran DeAngelo Williams should shoulder most of Pittsburgh's backfield workload, but Pead could compete with fellow backups Dre Archer and Jordan Todman for spare touches.

Pead will visit with the Steelers on Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Le'Veon Bell (knee) looking at an extended absence, Pead may join the Steelers to provide depth behind DeAngelo Williams. The former second-round draft pick (2012) was unimpressive during his time with the Rams, and he probably won't have a major role with the Steelers if he signs.

Pead was released by the Rams on Tuesday, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Todd Gurley, Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham all healthy, the Rams had no need for their 2012 second-round draft pick. Pead displayed top-notch speed and elusiveness in college, but he's shown next to nothing in the NFL. If he does get a look elsewhere, it may just be as a potential return man.

Pead carried two times for three yards and had a key lost fumble in Sunday's 34-31 overtime win against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Pead was the primary backup in the game with Tre Mason (hamstring) and Todd Gurley (knee) both out, but didn't see much time and nearly contributed to a devastating loss with a fumble in his own territory. With Mason likely to return soon and Tavon Austin seeing occasional carries, Pead is unlikely to see much, if any, game time in the future.

Pead gained 52 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in a 24-17 preseason loss to Philadelphia on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Pead may have solidified his roster spot with a stellar showing Thursday after nobody could run the ball in the team's previous game. With Tre Mason (hamstring) and Todd Gurley (knee) both ailing, Pead may actually see a carry or two in the season opener, especially if Mason does not play.

Pead tallied 18 yards on six rushes in Saturday's 24-14 preseason defeat at the hands of the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Pead may get himself a roster spot due to Todd Gurley being out for a little while still, but he is buried on the depth chart. He did have the longest run of the game Saturday at 13 yards, but only gained 5 yards on the other five rushes.

Pead may be the odd running back out come cutdown time in August with the drafting of Todd Gurley, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Pead missed last season with a knee injury and has had off-the-field issues in the past, so a completion between him and Trey Watts will likely end with Watts on the squad. Pead will have to really impress in the offseason and through training camp to get an opportunity to remain with the Rams.
