Antonio Brown Recruits Dez Bryant to Steelers Brown tells Bryant to Come to Pittsburgh on Twitter to Win Super Bowl
Bryant, 29, is no longer an elite wideout, but he’s still solid at the position. He registered 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season. Pro Football Focus gave him a grade of 75.2 last season, which was 47th among wide receivers. The three-time Pro Bowler was a 2014 first-team All-Pro and between 2011 and 2014 was one of the most dynamic wideouts in football, averaging 84 receptions, 1,216 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns during that span.
In Pittsburgh, Bryant would offer a solid red-zone threat, though it’s unlikely he’d start, with Brown and second-year standout JuJu Smith-Schuster available. Rookie James Washington is a lock to make the roster and play a role in the passing game as well, so Bryant would battle for the team’s fourth wide receiver position. It’s possible the Steelers could make a move for Bryant. But wide receiver isn’t an area of need, so it seems like a long shot.
