There are plenty of factors for the Steelers to cut this receiver after training camp

Another year and it seems like the Steelers will have another deep room of talent at receiver. There are plenty of starting caliber receivers that will come into training camp, and some might not earn a starting role when it is all said and done. There will also be some quality depth guys that might not make the team because of the depth.

Three receivers are locks to make the club and will contribute in varying starting roles Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, and Allen Robinson. After that will likely be two or three spots available for the remaining receivers to battle for in training camp. It is going to be a tough battle between Miles Boykin, Calvin Austin III, Anthony Miller, Hakeem Butler, and Gunner Olszewski.

Olszewski had a great pre-season last year, but he struggled to do much of anything once the season started. He accounts for a good chunk against the cap, but the Steelers seem content with seeing what he can provide during camp and then some. He and those that will battle for the final couple of spots on the roster will need to show some sort of ability on special teams.

Pittsburgh initially signed Olszewski via free agency because of his return skills, but those have yet to translate over from his former employer. Austin and Miller showed promise during their short stints as returners in training camp last year. Olszewski will have a lot of competition for his spot, and he will need a pre-season just like last year to have a shot at making this roster.
