Steelers stock report after the first wave of OTAs
By Tommy Jaggi
WR Anthony Miller: Stock down
Many fans were expecting Anthony Miller to not only make the team in 2022 but become a big part of the offense as a weapon from the slot. This didn't happen, as Miller spent the entire season on IR with a shoulder injury.
While many still have high hopes for the veteran receiver, the Steelers are suddenly very deep at the position, and Miller isn't helping his cause. Miller told Nick Farabaugh of Pittsburgh Sports Now that he is dealing with a 'little hamstring' injury, which has caused him to miss drills so far.
With a crowded wide receiver corps that includes players like George Pickens, Diontae Johnson, Allen Robinson II, Calvin Austin III, Myles Boykin, Hakeem Butler, and Gunner Olszewski, this is not the type of start Miller needed to help his chances of sticking around and making a difference in 2023.
Miller is already 28 years old, and the Pittsburgh Steelers may be more apt to go with younger healthier players. He needs to be out there soon, and even though this is just OTAs, his stock is trending down after suffering a minor hamstring injury this spring.
