Martavis Bryant will get 'every opportunity' to be No. 2 receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Steelers will give second-year pro Martavis Bryant "every opportunity this summer to claim the No. 2 receiver spot" opposite superstar Antonio Brown, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley said what Bryant accomplished in the second half of last season was a "big thing."

“We are looking for him to come in and make a push against Markus Wheaton for that No. 2 spot and continue to give us big-time production, specifically in the red area where a big target like that can make a big impact,” Haley said.

A fourth-round pick out of Clemson, Bryant was inactive the first six games before catching six touchdowns in the first four games he played. He finished with 26 catches for 549 yards and eight scores, adding five grabs for 61 yards and a touchdown in the playoff loss to Baltimore.

“When young guys come in at the receiver position and contribute early like he did, it is a big thing,” Haley said. “He took a lot of pressure off Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton … he really had a big impact on our offense. He is a guy we are going to work real hard throughout the offseason and, like all young players, he should make progress from year one to year two.”

Wheaton caught 53 passes for 644 yards and two scores while playing every game.

Trio of Steelers make strong contributions to Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

As usual, no Steelers receiver could match what Antonio Brown produced Sunday against Atlanta. But a trio certainly helped the team to victory.

The best of the bunch were tight end Heath Miller, whose 26-yard snag late in the third quarter helped him finish with 68 yards on four receptions, and wideout Markus Wheaton, who made good on all five targets for 66 yards. Martavis Bryant pitched in with three catches for 31 yards.
