Wheaton Could Emerge as Steelers’ Best Red Zone Threat

The Steelers’ Markus Wheaton entered last week’s season opener in New England knowing he could be called upon to make big plays. With the Bill Belichick-Patriots famous for taking top players away from the offense, Wheaton was expected to pick up the load from a limited Antonio Brown. While it didn’t unfold that way because Brown proved just how good he was with nine receptions...

WATCH: Steelers WR Markus Wheaton Shows Darius Heyward-Bey How To Make A Sideline Catch

Markus Wheaton and Darius Heyward-Bey appeared to split time Thursday night against New England as the Steelers No. 3 receiver with Martavis Bryant serving a suspension.

Wider receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery are both free agents this offseason and it’s unlikely Sanders will return while Cotchery’s status is still up in the air. With the possible...
