Eli Rogers is Pittsburgh’s secret weapon – Pittsburgh Steelers News


The Pittsburgh Steelers have done a fantastic job of selecting wide receivers in the NFL Draft.

Markus Wheaton, Martavis Bryant, Antonio Brown, etc.,etc…Bleacher Report named Eli Rogers as the surprise secret weapon for the upcoming season.

“But don’t forget about Eli Rogers. It’ll be easier for him to get lost with the likes of Brown and Bryant being target magnets, and running back Le’Veon Bell is always a major factor in the passing game. However, even if Rogers is the third or fourth option, he’ll still likely make a meaningful contribution as a shifty slot receiver.

He did that in 2016, a season when he finished with a respectable 594 receiving yards. His role increased as the season progressed, as he recorded 220 yards over Pittsburgh’s final three regular-season games, and then was targeted 10 times during the Steelers’ playoff loss to the New England Patriots.

In 2017 he’ll be one of the less talked-about pieces of a loaded offense, but an important one nonetheless.”

Rogers joined Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

A year ago, he accumulated 48 receptions for 594 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season.
