How the Pittsburgh Steelers are getting younger

In recent years, the Pittsburgh Steelers have become known as a team who is long in the tooth, especially on the defensive side of the ball, but the organization is making strides to combat that notion. Through the draft, the team has addressed the need to become younger over the last few years. Many players for the Steelers who are in their first three years or less, are making...

Just when it looked like Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton was starting to see increased playing time during his 2013 rookie season, a busted finger in the Week 4 game in London against the Minnesota Vikings set back his development.

What Should We Expect From Markus Wheaton in 2014?

I liked the pick of Markus Wheaton in the third round of last year’s NFL Draft. I would have loved Keenan Allen in the second but Le’Veon Bell has proven himself more than worthy of his second round selection.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Markus Wheaton poised for a breakout year

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense started last season slow but picked up the pace toward the end. However, heading into this season Ben Roethlisberger’s arsenal may look a bit different.

Breakout Could Be on Horizon for Wheaton in 2014

When I started looking at Markus Wheaton last year (before he was drafted), I thought that he looked ready to step into the Steelers offense immediately. Wheaton was a small-ish receiver that was dangerous in space, and was used a number of ways at Oregon State. He had a quick first step, which allowed him to get a lot of work on bubble screens, as well as track speed to get deep...
