The Steelers have nothing but talent at the wide receiver position even with Martavis Bryant suspended for a year. Antonio Brown figures to keep proving that so-called “small receivers” can play big. He’s physically unreal and completely un-guardable.
Antonio Brown has set an NFL record with 264 receptions over a two-year span and could legitimately be the first receiver in NFL history with 2,000 receiving yards in one season. He and Ben Roethlisberger have the kind of psychic link that will go down in the history books as one of the greatest of all time.
Markus Wheaton averaged just fewer than 80 yards per game in the second half of the 2015 season, establishing himself as the Steelers’ No. 2 receiver possibly with or without Martavis Bryant.
Sammie Coates took his rookie season and built on it with an offseason full of training and preparation. He stayed close to Pittsburgh and was present for the entire offseason workout programs and looks to make his mark this year.
Darrius Heyward-Bey was once thought of as a draft bust and a risky signing but has proven himself since joining the Steelers in 2014 and was rewarded this offseason with a three-year, $3.8 million contract.
