Goals are always good, and rookies set plenty of them. For Najee Harris, a big one is working toward a leadership role with his new team.

Before he gets too far ahead of himself, Harris said one important aspect he needs to get down first is the offense.

“I barely know the offense,” Harris told Teresa Varley of Steelers.com. “The veterans aren’t here. I haven’t met them. Trying to move at a fast pace, it’s always about taking things step by step by step.”

Once a leader with the Crimson Tide, Harris knows that the more experience he gains in Pittsburgh, the leadership role will come naturally “in time.”

“When it comes that time to become a leader, then it is,” Harris said. “It’s not something I am thinking about. It’s just learning the offense, my teammates, that type of person they are bonding with them, so I can become someone they can trust and find ways to help them out if I can and from there, what happens, happens.”
