Pittsburgh Steelers running back LaRod Stephens-Howling admits that he is delighted to have returned to his hometown state.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back LaRod Stephens-Howling has admitted that it is a "great feeling" to be at the club.

The 26-year-old grew up in Pennsylvania and attended college in Pittsburgh before being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2009 draft.

Stephens-Howling returned to his hometown state after Mike Tomlin's side signed him up in free agency.

"It's a great feeling — a homecoming feeling," Stephens-Howling told reporters.

"But after all that excitement gets out of the way, we're still at training camp and we're working hard to get a job on the 53. It doesn't matter where you're at, that's it."

Stephens-Howling has scored 11 touchdowns during his four years in the league.
