There’s been a lot of talk about increased harmony
Steelers wide receiver group this offseason and it has come with a backdrop of questions about how productive they’ll be without Antonio Brown in town anymore.Pittsburgh will be counting on another big season for JuJu Smith-Schuster Kevin Greene Jersey , but won’t be looking to one player to replace Brown’s numbers alongside him. Donte Moncrief will be part of the group vying for time alongside Smith-Schuster and he feels that he and the other wideouts have the potential to make a big impact.“As [wide receivers] coach [Darryl Drake] said, you’re always going to be as strong as your weakest guy,” Moncrief said, via the team’s website. “In our room we try to pick everybody up, make sure everybody’s on the same page and make sure everybody’s ready to go to play every position. If we can do that Lynn Swann Jersey , our receivers room will be electric.”James Washington, third-round pick Diontae Johnson, Ryan Switzer and Eli Rogers are others in the group with Moncrief and Smith-Schuster. Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has said goodbye to Pittsburgh, but the Steelers have yet to say goodbye to Brown. One prominent reporter who covers the team believes they should.Ed Bouchette of the , appearing Wednesday morning on Bud Dupree Jersey , argued that the Steelers should take whatever they can get in trade for Brown, accepting the best offer on the table before his $2.5 million roster bonus becomes due on March 17.Bouchette believes the Steelers should trade Brown, even if the compensation consists of a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020.It wouldn’t be the first time the Steelers sold low when it comes to a star receiver. In 2010, four years after Santonio Holmes arrived via round one and two years after he became the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, the Steelers dumped Holmes onto the Jets for a fifth-round draft pick after news emerged of a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.A sixth-round pick the same year Holmes was traded David DeCastro Jersey , Brown is now on the verge of being gone. Given the various distractions and persistent dysfunction with which the Steelers have been dealing in recent months, it makes sense for both sides to get a fresh start.
