The Steelers are bringing in Donte Moncrief to help fill their void at wide receiver, but they’re also keeping one of their own.

A league source tells PFT that Eli Rogers has re-signed for another year with the Steelers.

Rogers only played three games last season after suffering a torn ACL in the 2017 playoffs. In 2016, he caught 48 passes for 594 yards and three touchdowns.

Rogers was suspended for the first game of last season (while he was rehabbing his injury) for violating the league’s substances of abuse policy.

  1. Glad to see the Steelers hang on to Rogers.

    However, I do not want to see them re-sign either Hunter or Heyward-Bey. Neither of them has done much as a receiver for the last couple of years. It is time to groom some new blood at the bottom of the receiver depth chart so we can have a realistic ‘next man up’ if there is an injury at the top of the receiver depth chart.

  2. They always referred to him as the next AB… very quick .. very good hands, seems to always catch the important balls.. just got hurt and took a very long road to recovery and people seemed to have forgotten about him! I am glad he gets another year with Pitt to show his talents and hopefully grow on the way he ended the season… GREAT SIGNING!!!

    And the Moncrief signing was huge also… guy shined pretty bright with a bum in Jacksonville who only threw the same patterns during games… Ben should have a lot of fun with his size and speed… LETS GO STEELERS!!

  3. Brought back Rogers, Signed Donte Moncrief, signed Steven Nelson.
    They’ve added insurance at the WR and DB position, Got 3 picks in trading AB and Gilbert. They are moving up in Rd 1 for one of the Devin’s. The rest of the draft will be BPA at DB/WR/TE

  4. Quick! Sign the mediocre players NOW. That’s all the Steelers have left. The stars are all gone.
