Steelers rookie Najee Harris announces presence with epic stiffarm of Johnathan Abram

PITTSBURGH -- Najee Harris is not messing around.

In his debut at Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh Steelers' rookie running back showed why he was so coveted in the NFL Draft as he violently stiff-armed safety Johnathan Abram en route to a 9-yard gain.

Abram tried to bring Harris down on the first-down run, but the Alabama product shook him off, shoved him down and kept going. The home crowd roared as Abram hit the turf and gave an encore cheer when the replay came up on the video board a few seconds later.
