Coates was 10 x the player Hunter turned out to be.

Actually, the whopping 70 yards receiving Coates posted for the SEASON last year is triple the yardage we got from Hunter.

Just sayin.

These signings are meaningless. No guarantee that any of the guys signed recently beyond Boswell will have a roster spot in September.

Coates was the least fluid and had the worst ball awareness i've ever seen in the NFL. Not to mention terrible hands. Hunter will be in camp. Which means shit in terms of the 53.

AB
JuJu
MB
.
.
.
.
.
.
DHB
Hunter
Rogers?

There is a huge gap at #4 WR.
Not only are we in win mode now, the team always needs to plan ahead as well. So 2019 that list looks like.

AB
JuJu.

Steelers need to not only draft a WR, but probably need to add a good #4 WR after or before the cut downs.
We need a #4 WR that can catch 30-40 balls and capable of coming in filling in for an injury to #1-#3 guys.
That #4 guy can be a #3 or even a #2 very quickly.
Bites tongue hard!

Justin Hunter and DHB are not that guy.
I think Hunter is a very limited route runner. Seems like when he gets on the field, he has one route, lined up right on a straight go route. And Ben is chucking it to him before they break the huddle.
14 catches in the last two years, 36 in last 3 years. A career catch percentage of 47%
One saving attribute he has is the TD's. 5 of his 14 catches last 2 years went for TD's.
At 6'-4" and a generous 196 pounds, he is a 4th WR at best, but should head to camp in a battle for 5th/6th WR.
and a 5th/6th WR should play specials. Do not think he does?

DHB is a another guy that I do not see stepping up to be that 30-40 catch #4 WR.
He has 8 catches in the last 2 years. 2 of those 8 went for TD's
32 catches in 4 years playing for his older brother in the Burgh.

Rogers may or may not be back in the mix come camp.
Do not know how his recovery is going from the knee surgery.
He was not slot speedy to start with.
And he is still a Free Agent.
I could see the PS signing him to a vet min. 1 year contract in a battle for 5th/6th WR.

Again, AB, JuJu or MB miss a week and its Hunter or DHB.

Hunter, DHB or Rogers as the #4 is not good.

I think the Steelers draft a WR in round 3 or 5.
Would not be suprised if they draft one in round 2.

How about remaining free agenst out there.

How about a guy like Eric Decker.
He is 31.
6'-3"
54 for 563 and 1 TD last year in only 8 starts.
2015 he had 80-1,027 with 12 TD's
Double digit TD's in 3 of his past 6 seasons.

His wife is a bonus and will instanly become the favorite Jessie James in town.

Anybody else still out ther?
Jerremy Maclin. 40+ catches everyone of his 8 seasons. He will be 30 soon.
Brandon Coleman. 6'-6". still only 25. 23-364-3 last year with N.O.
Dontrell Inman 25-243-1 last year with 2 teams
Bennie Flower 29-350-3 last year with Denver.

Given the salary cap limitations.
We may have to hang our hat on a second or 3rd round draft pick catching on quick and grabbing that #4 spot.

Always a good thing on a rainey, chilly Friday

Decker played on 1 year, $4 million contract with Titans last year.
$1.35 base, $2.5 signing bonus.

At this point in Free agency and the draft looming.
Can't see him getting much more than 1 year vet min. up to $1.5-1.6 total contract

as far as cap eaters that Decker can replace.

Sensabaugh $1.4 base and cap savings
DHB $1.2 base and cap savings.
Wilkcox $3.125 base and cap savings ( the draft and if we land that safety early may determine if he stays )
McCuellers $790k
Frenchy $790k.

I could see all 5 of those guys getting cut = $7.3 million in cap space.
DHB would be the safest.
