Dave Mackall, of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reports former NFL RB Byron Morris would like to make a comeback in the NFL. Morris is currently playing for an indoor league team in Texas and is awaiting a ruling from the NFL on his reinstatement request. Morris was released from a Texas prison in July of 2004 after serving 2 1/2 years for a parole violation. Morris has mentioned the Pittsburgh Steelers specifically and said, "If the Steelers would want to sign me, they wouldn't have to even buy me a plane ticket to get there. I'd drive. I don't want any favors, no special treatment. I'm not asking for no hand-me-downs because I know I won't get it. If people say, 'You don't have it,' I can live with it." Morris claims he has overcome his past troubles, which included substance abuse.
