Ben Roethlisberger praises Markus Wheaton for progress
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite a lack of production as a rookie in 2013, Steelers wideout Markus Wheaton has received praise from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Wheaton was held without a catch in the final six games of last season, but Roethlisberger believes his offseason work has put him in position to make a significant impact this year.

"He's a young guy people don't know about yet," Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He hasn't earned that respect, which is probably rightfully so, because he hasn't done much. But I'm excited for him because I think he's going to surprise a lot of people."

The Steelers are hoping Wheaton can emerge to take the pressure off premier receiver Antonion Brown that has been lacking since the departure of Mike Wallace. Faith in Wheaton prompted the team to allow Emmanuel Sanders to leave for Denver.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Seahawks veteran wide receiver Percy Harvin considers himself as healthy as he's been since his high school days in Virginia Beach, the Tacoma News-Tribune has reported.

"All the injuries I've had, a couple extra (months) to heal up from everything last year ... everything that I had with my hip, it controlled a lot - the hamstring, the knee problems," he said. "My legs are feeling how they are supposed to feel. Very fluid. Very smooth. ... It's all good."

Harvin played in just one game with one catch in his first season with Seattle in 2013.
