NFL free agency rumors: Steelers sign WR Donte Moncrief after Antonio Brown trade | NFL
The Steelers already have started filling the gap left by Antonio Brown with the addition of former Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief.
According to ESPN, which cited unidentified sources, Moncrief and Pittsburgh agreed to a two-year deal.
Moncrief, selected by Indianapolis in the third round of the 2014 draft, will join the Steelers after spending four seasons with the Colts and one with Jacksonville. He caught 48 passes for 668 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games for the Jaguars last season.
The Steelers’ offense will look much different heading into the 2019 season with the departure of wideout Brown and star running back Le’Veon Bell.
Moncrief will be another option for veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and he will team up with wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, who had 111 catches for 1,426 yards last year.
Smith-Schuster is expected to have an even heavier work load in Brown’s absence.
