Justin Thomas has special athletic ability...The roster battles shall be interesting

Maybe-- I think Jaylen Samuels will be the 1st backup wideout in the slot.

Good Riddance. I always thought he was a below average WR, a below average slot WR. Never understood the attraction that some fans and media types had for him. I was one of those that was clamoring for a bigger, more talented WR for the slot and then my prayers were answered and the Steelers drafted JuJu.

If he were resigned he would probably see maybe 10 catches on the year? Maybe less than that? Last season that 50% catch rate and 8.3 yards per catch was pathetic. That is what Eli was producing before the injury. And he plays scared as a punt returner to boot, if I have to watch him or Brown avoid catching the punt and letting it roll inside the 5 yard line again, I will put my foot through the TV.

Honestly, is there really any difference between Marcus Tucker and Eli Rogers? They are about the same size, speed, etc. Rogers has the punt returner experience while Tucker was a kickoff returner. Tucker had 62 kickoff returns in college, averaged 25.7 per return.

Have Cam Sutton do punt returns and Tucker do kick returns. Then Marcus can also be the 4th/5th WR and be content with 10 catches. Rogers if resigned would probably mope and be a malcontent, do we need that? Remember this is one of those players that broke curfew in Miami and then was suspended/deactivated for a game by the Steelers so don't tell me he is a super high character, team first player who would never cause any problems.


THank you.
Eli was your typical JAG. You could put 20 WR's from around the NFL at random and replicate what he did. DHB probably would've performed better.
Looking forward to better talent next season

Most 4/5 WRs are JAG...if you’re lucky. Just saying.

The issue Jobus is that people were saying he was this great find as a slot WR, that he had such a stranglehold on that 3rd WR position that poor JuJu was going to have a tough time finding playing time, that JuJu would most likely be deactivated each game!!!

That is the line of bullshit that was making the rounds last offseason. Why did they draft JuJu? What a waste of a second round pick, we are set with Brown, Bryant, and Rogers and don't forget Coates coming back from injury, blah, blah, blah. JuJu won't ever see the field, yada, yada, yada.

Not only did Rogers quickly lose his job as the #3 WR, but his play further declined when he did see the field. He is not worthy of being on this team, plain and simple, yet there are some fans that just get nervous and cling to these players like they are some sort of 'comfort food'. Oh, we need Eli Rogers, we need Art Moats, we need Landry Jones. Why?

Source: free agent WR Eli Rogers is leaving his visit with the Chiefs without a deal. He’s now headed to visit the Browns. He played for Browns OC Todd Haley the last three seasons in Pittsburgh. https://twitter.com/FieldYates/status/1 ... 5323310080
Like the Lottery..."Who's Next?!"

@MikeReiss
First-year safety David Jones (Richmond), who spent last year on the Patriots practice squad, was informed of his release by the team. The Patriots now have 2 open spots on their 90-man roster. https://twitter.com/MikeReiss/status/10 ... 1844611072
At only 24 he's 4.43 40 guy, 4.32 3 cone; tackle machine at Richmond. Very athletic guy throwing for two TD's, also returning a punt 68 yards for a TD. Intriguing.
Quote:
from: http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/ ... id=2558788 Jones went from a 165-pound, often-used reserve (36 stops, one interception in 2013; 33 tackles, two interceptions in 2014) to a 200-pound, third-team All-American as a junior as he tied for the FCS lead with nine interceptions. He also had 97 tackles, three for loss, and three pass breakups that season. Jones missed half of last season due to a fractured left forearm, but still had 29 tackles and two interceptions in six contests.

Come on Haley, do us a favor and sign Eli Rogers!

Yeah, I have to think that this may be another year where the Steelers may give up a draft pick to acquire a vet for depth. Tackle could be a big problem if we had some injuries, OLB too.

Not disagreeing with a thing you posted. Just that should the Steelers bring him back as the 4th or 5th guy, I’m not going to throw a fit over it...unless they give him an outrageous salary for that roster spot.
