The Steelers really did use a second round pick to replace Martavis Bryant — twice

Many believe Martavis Bryant's enormous potential could never be replaced in the Steelers’ lineup. But the team used two second-round picks, not only to replace him in the lineup, but also to replace him on the roster. “lol that’s Sammie Coates’ replacement, not mine, take it how you want to, I am back.” That was the infamous Tweet from former Steelers receiver Martavis Bryant on the night Pittsburgh selected USC’s JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Bryant made news for throwing his new teammate under the bus on social media, but do you think this...

JuJu Smith-Schuster prefers the slot, which is great news for James Washington

Expected to have a big second year, JuJu Smith-Schuster’s flexibility might equate to big things for rookie James Washington. The Pittsburgh Steelers shipping Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders did more than just rock the fan base, it shook up the team’s wide-receiver depth chart. Once considered the most complete receiver group in the NFL, the Bryant trade meant the team would be relying heavily on younger players to step up. One of those players is second-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Coming off of a season where he nearly eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark,...

JuJu Smith-Schuster added to the list of Steelers ‘walking wounded’

The Pittsburgh Steelers are working hard in minicamp, but several starters are resting some nagging injuries. It might just be minicamp, but sometimes injuries which happen early in the preseason, or in the offseason, can linger. Fans might remember Mike Mitchell’s groin injury, suffered in the early stages of training camp his first year with the Steelers, lasted the entire season and eventually needed surgically repaired. The same story could be told regarding Bud Dupree’s groin, which required sports hernia surgery after it never improved during training camp, nor with adequate...

Steelers WR Smith-Schuster eyes bigger role in Year 2

PITTSBURGH (AP) JuJu Smith-Schuster is an open book. Unless you ask the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver about the left knee issue that's forced him to spend most of the offseason watching workouts instead of participating in them.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster dealing with ‘frustrating’ knee injury

JuJu Smith-Schuster enjoyed a breakout season last year and the expectations are even higher this year, especially with Martavius Bryant gone. He isn’t 100 percent yet due to a knee injury that no one will really elaborate on, but it’s really frustrating Smith-Schuster, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “Just something that’s been bothering me over time,” […] The post Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster dealing with ‘frustrating’ knee injury appeared first on ClutchPoints.

JuJu Smith-Schuster on recovery from knee injury: 'I'll be ready'

Steelers second-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has a knee injury that has prevented him from participating in any of the team’s practices this spring, but he fully expects to be ready to play when the team reports to training camp July 25.

What if JuJu Smith-Schuster would have stepped out of bounds in the Patriots game last year?

We take a look back at JuJu Smith-Schuster’s huge catch-and-run and wonder ‘what if’. Last year, after the Pittsburgh Steelers’ heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots in Week 15 at Heinz Field, I received an email from a follower of the site asking me to take a look back at the JuJu Smith-Schuster catch-and-run in the waning minutes of the game. The reader asked one question, “What if JuJu didn’t cut back into the middle of the field?” At the time I was too disgusted to really want to go back and look, but I try to respond to all emails sent to me regarding the...

Watch: JuJu Smith-Schuster vs K-9 police dog

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the most outgoing young athletes in football. His name – JuJu Smith-Schuster. And this time, it wasn’t his touchdown celebrations or YouTube videos that are getting attention. JuJu Smith-Schuster has become a household name to anyone in Pittsburgh. Whether you watch football or not, you’ve heard of the crazy, […] Watch: JuJu Smith-Schuster vs K-9 police dog - Still Curtain - Still Curtain - A Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

In charity event, Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster meets foe with more bite than bark

Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster has probably never been tackled quite like this.

Watch JuJu Smith-Schuster take on a K-9 police dog at Ben Roethlisberger’s charity softball game

JuJu Smith-Schuster put on the protective arm gear to show how powerful a K-9 Police dog can be at Big Ben’s charity softball game. The Pittsburgh Steelers are banking on a big year for second year pro JuJu Smith-Schuster. When they traded Martavis Bryant to the Raiders during Day 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft, it was expected Smith-Schuster would be the main person to pick up the slack in his stead. So, when Cameron Heyward posted a video of Smith-Schuster taking on a K-9 Police dog with a protective arm sleeve at Ben Roethlisberger’s charity softball game, they might not have been too...

Why Bucs receiver Mike Evans' lack of yards after catches isn't a huge problem

Late in a game against Detroit last season, Ben Roethlisberger dropped back 7 yards into the end zone and scanned the field. In the middle, JuJu Smith-Schuster blew past cornerback Quandre Diggs. The Lions' two safeties, their last line of defense, were watching the Steelers'

In 2017, JuJu Smith-Schuster was money for the Steelers on go routes

JuJu Smith-Schuster shocked a lot of people in 2017, but one area where he excelled was on the simply go route. The Pittsburgh Steelers surprised many with their second round selection of JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but Smith-Schuster did more than just prove the Steelers selection right — he turned heads as a rookie in the NFL. Not only did Smith-Schuster almost have 1,000 yards receiving last year, and if it weren’t for his one-game suspension for his block of Vontaze Burfict he likely would have achieved that milestone, the former USC wideout proved...

JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cameron Heyward attending Steelers OTAs, but not on-field portion

Some are wondering where JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cameron Heyward have been at OTAs, and the answer is they have been there. Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in the modern-day NFL have not changed, but for some reason the news this year has been dominated by players who are not in attendance at these completely voluntary workouts. The same can be said regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers. Le’Veon Bell has missed all of the last two years worth of OTAs, and Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown have joined him in those missing from the workouts. In fact, the dynamic quarterback and wide...

Pittsburgh Steelers bring back 1978 throwback uniforms for 2018

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be repping some throwbacks, hoping 2018 brings the same success these jerseys saw when they first hit the shelves. Art Rooney II and JuJu Smith-Schuster brought some excitement to the Steelers’ summer without being on the field, or reading headlines about someone complaining on social media (or in a song). Yesterday, […] Pittsburgh Steelers bring back 1978 throwback uniforms for 2018 - Still Curtain - Still Curtain - A Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Will the Steelers follow the Penguins’ lead with uniform selection?

The Pittsburgh Steelers did something the Pittsburgh Penguins did not too long ago with their uniforms. Will the outcome remain the same for both teams? The Pittsburgh Steelers unveiled their newest throwback uniforms Wednesday, and fans were excited to see the return of the block numbers, circa the fabulous ‘70s all the way to the mid-90s. Since the team went to the curved numbers and letters on the name plate to match those on the helmets, fans simply haven’t liked them as much. When I saw the jersey change, and saw JuJu Smith-Schuster rocking the latest throwback, I couldn’t help...
