    that's about the best compliment a WR can get.

    The height doesn't worry me, but is he really only 161 lbs?

    Can't imagine him taking a full-on shot from a LB and walking away.

    I’m thinking a vet wr and a 5th rounder.
    Too many needs to draft a wr with one of our first 4 picks.
    How is it possible to have the best owner, best front office, best gm, best HC, good/great drafts every year and good FA acquisitions every year, but only have 3 playoff wins in 14 years?

    Me, I'm not so sure. He sure looks like he could be a "too small to play in NFL" candidate. Missing an entire year from a non-ligament tear doesn't help matters. And what were those odd quotes from Tomlin and Canada about "we don't know how to use him" both made when he appeared to be healthy?

    Prove me wrong, Calvin. We sure could use another play maker out there.
    based on the article you posted, it says Austin "may" be the next man up, and then says the Steelers will probs get more competition in in form of draft or vet WR.

    not much talk up of Austin. I hope he does well.

    even that means a trade... They don't have a 5 or 6, that's the problem... As it stands, it's either top 4 rounds or round 7...

    Ooops, sorry.
    Good catch.
    Do you remember who we gave away those picks for?
    Gimme 2 cheap vet FA then.

    I didn't remember, but had me curious.

    5th for Ahkello Witherspoon - good value here and worth it, IMO
    6th for Malik Reed - this was Reed and a pick swap, 6th for 7th (and is why the team has two in the 7th). Meh, they needed a body; not terrible

    The headline certainly disagrees.

    "Steelers going all-in on WR Calvin Austin III in 2023"

    He played at 160-something, listed at 170 LBs now I believe.

    Not many players can't exist in the NFL at 170 LBs. Even at 180 LBs.

    Position: WR

    5-9, 162lb (175cm, 73kg)

    162, if the winds blowing too hard, he's gonna have problems.
