Steelers 2014 roster breakdown: Wide receivers

Antonio Brown is the unquestioned leader of the receivers, but depth behind him will make or break the success of this group in 2014. As Pittsburgh Steelers training camp is set to begin, Behind the Steel Curtain takes a look at each position battle and how players at those positions are expected to perform. PITTSBURGH -- This Steelers wide receivers are the most-experienced from top to bottom that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has had since the club made him the 11th overall pick in 2004, and that could lead to his best season yet. Antonio Brown is the leader of this wideout group, an...

Antonio Brown mimicks LeBron James, returns to original representation

The Steelers' All Pro receiver changes his representation for the second time in three months, dumping Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports to return to Rosenhaus Sports. Well, that was fast. Antonio Brown made a ripple or two when he announced he was singing with Roc Nation, the agency owned by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z back in May. According to Fox Sports and other outlets, Brown is leaving Roc Nation for Rosenhaus Sports, returning to his original agency. Rosenhaus Sports negotiated Brown's $42.5 million contract in 2012, and no reason was given for him leaving either agency. Perhaps a general lack of...
Antonio Brown may be too good to leave off punt returns in 2014

Antonio Brown may be too good to leave off punt returns in 2014

Rookie receiver Dri Archer was a premier kick returner in college, but was never tested as a punt returner. If he is unable to competently reutrn punts this year, and perhaps even if he is, All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown may resume the role. Despite the inherent risks, Brown may simply be too good not to return punts in 2014. Earlier in the off-season I wrote an article discussing the utility of Dri Archer, focusing on his ability to return kicks and punts. Archer is already an outstanding kick returner as evidenced in college, his blazing quick speed making him a breakaway threat...

2014 Steelers season scenarios: Antonio Brown leads league in receptions

It's not a question of Brown's ability or the focus of the offense, but getting him around 115 catches, a general range at which a receiver would lead the NFL, just may not happen with the balance the Steelers are looking for in 2014. Scenario: Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown leads the NFL in receptions. Why it will happen: The Steelers' revitalized running game will draw tighter defense around the line of scrimmage, but knowing the Steelers will work in an option to get the ball to Brown on short, quick throws in any situation they see a defense playing off him in single coverage, he...
