Steelers receiver Mike Wallace has become one of the great young wideouts in the NFL. But Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb thinks there’s even a greater receiver.
On the same team.
“Every time somebody asks me [a question], they’re always talking about Mike Wallace. But they have a guy No. 84 in Antonio Brown who is better than 17 [Wallace] in all aspects of the game,” Webb said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. “He’s a great returner, a great wide receiver.”
Webb also thinks that the Steelers are more dangerous with Hines Ward out of the lineup.
“They’re actually a better team with 88 [Emmanuel Sanders] than with Hines Ward,” Webb said. “They’re very dangerous without Hines.”
On that note, could the team’s current complement of young wideouts force Ward out of town? Here’s Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette discussing the matter on Wednesday’s edition of PFT Live.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
