Griffey and Jones could return to those roles again this year while Holton will try to continue his path with another team as he is not practice squad eligible. This group was easily on of the best in the league as recent as last season, but it still remains to be seen how the Steelers will fare without All-Pro Antonio Brown. A trade during training camp or later in the preseason is the likely scenario. Who will emerge as the Steelers slot wide receiver? Where once resided a quiet fear of replacing All-Pro Antonio Brown, Steelers fans can begin to relax and look forward to what looks to be a seamless transition into the future. I think we will find out in camp if Rogers can fully recover from his ACL tear. At this point in his career, Moncrief is an average NFL receiver, but a change in teams could shake things up. As we look over the 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers roster, what we find are a lot of positional units fairly locked in as far as their depth charts go. If that turns out to be the case, Switzer will still have ample opportunity to add production to the offense. He is the clear cut number one receiver in Pittsburgh. Eli Rogers has proven to be competent, but he could be on the outside looking in after the Steelers traded for Ryan Switzer last year.

The team failed to improve upon its 9–6–1 record from 2018 following a Week 16 loss to the New York Jets. Rounding out the depth chart is returning 2018 practice squad members Trey Griffey and Tevin Jones along with veteran newcomer Johnny Holton. This was the question the Pittsburgh Steelers had to ask at the start of the 2019 season. The Atlanta Falcons waived former first-round draft pick Takk McKinley on Monday. The sports you love, the teams you follow, we've got it covered. Ryan Switzer was the Steelers primary return man last year and that should help his cause for making the roster. He is 6’3 and ran in the 4.4s at the combine. Rogers also is an average punt returner and that should help his cause for making the roster. He’s been a consistent weapon in his first five seasons, but he hasn’t been a game breaker by any means. There is a lot of inexperience among a group of widely unproven wide receivers. Steelers 2019 season review: Wide receivers. Switzer is a player Ben Roethlisberger could learn to love in 2019. It will be interesting to see how Ben Roethlisberger distributes targets to his receivers in 2020 – especially with the acquisitions of Chase Claypool and Eric Ebron this offseason.
