    Overlook his stats last season as he had the worst combination of QBs in the NFL throwing to him.

    One positive, he had some success playing with Andrew Luck, who scrambles and extends plays something like what Ben can do. Steelers WRs need to be flexible enough in their mind to break off routes, throw in double moves etc, to get separation in those instances, which he has shown he can do.
    I think we will absolutely draft a WR in the first three round. Let me rephrase "a WR or TE." I prefer an early pick on a potentially elite TE

    It certainly is. I am fine with the Browns, Raiders, Ravens etc stealing the offseason headlines. We are quietly making some very good moves early on in FA. This certainly gives us a more clearer path to our draft choices, and allows some of our younger guys more time to develop. Kudos to the FO for a job well done. Now all we need is a draft comparable to the 2017 class (3 pro-bowlers this year).

    This is a great value add. Takes the pressure off to draft a WR to quickly. Ju Ju, Moncrief and Washington to start the year. Ill take it.

    Ran a 4.4 40 at the combine. Good for third fastest WR that year (2014). Hes got deep speed.

    The last 2 years have been frustrating for him Luck was hurt all year in 17 and then last year Bortles was his QB. He probably feels as if he crested a desert hill and just found an oasis!

    Best Season 2015 (2nd in league): 64 catches / 733 yards / 6 TDs.

    I think the Moncrief signing shifts that towards a TE. Outside of the top 3 (Hockensen, Fant, Smith Jr).... I believe a very good prospect will be there in round 3 when we pick. A '"Plug and play" guy.

    Me too; I’m feeling really good about what our first 4 picks can be. Just hope & pray we get 2 linebackers out of the first 4 picks. That would be ideal.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.
    Dolphin fans in the 90s who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70s...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    Good Signing. Now we should be done with calculated contracts. Bargain Time & non-calculated contracts. Need Insurance, depth, & camp comp. See what Barron & Brown will cost. Houston or Perry. Need a DT go get McGee. If Burnett on way out see what Cyprien cost. Pick up phone put offers out there. These are the type of signings now that created good depth & competition.

    The pink elephant is still in the room. The giant need at ILB.
