Steelers could sign Parris Campbell
Parris Campbell isn’t the type of receiver who is going to force Diontae Johnson or George Pickens off the field unless there’s an injury to either player or they are completely gassed. However, that doesn’t mean he couldn’t offer this team some quality depth at the wide receiver position.
After a very slow start to his NFL career in which he didn’t see much usage from 2019-2021, Campbell has developed into a security blanket for a struggling Colts offense in 2022. Campbell can line up in various roles but is best from the slot. At nearly 6’0” and 205 pounds, the former Ohio State product has a good frame for his role.
Despite running a 4.31 forty-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine, Campbell hasn’t been used as much of a deep threat, as he has averaged just 10.3 yards per reception in his career, per ESPN stats. However, perhaps the Steelers could find a way to use his speed to their advantage.
Even at just 25 years old, Cambell should come at a relatively cheap cost, as Spotrac.com estimates him earning $2.5 million annually in free agency this year. That’s not a bad price to pay for a veteran receiver who could offer some depth and security at the position.
