Jets' Dri Archer: Signs reserve-future deal with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dri Archer was signed to a reserve-future deal by the New York Jets on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The speedy scat back out of Kent State was released by the Steelers in November to clear room for the addition of kick returner Jacoby Jones. Archer possesses blazing speed, but his deficiencies in other areas prevented him from seeing any touches on the offensive side of the ball this season. He was serviceable in the return game through eight games with the Steelers in 2015, averaging 25.3 yards on 14 kick returns. With three established running backs already on the roster, Archer's clearest path to a roster spot is likely as a special teamer.

Steelers' Dri Archer: Sees kick return duty Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dri Archer returned two kicks for 34 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Though fellow RB Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury in the game that threatens his availability for the rest of the season, it was DeAngelo Williams who handled all the Pittsburgh Steelers ' carries once Bell exited the contest. That siad, it's possible that Archer and/or Jordan Todman could factor in as change-of-pace options in the team's offense in the coming weeks.

Steelers want to get Dri Archer 5-6 touches per game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers speedster Dri Archer got 17 offensive touches as a rookie last season, rushing 10 times for 40 yards and catching seven passes for 23 yards. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley called Archer "a unique talent" and said he wants to get him the ball more often in 2015, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"He is probably the fastest guy on the field wherever we go," Haley said. "At the same time he is in a little bit of a difficult spot because we have a guy in Le’Veon [Bell] who is capable and you really want on the field as much as possible. In a lot of places where you have running backs coming off the field, Le’Veon tends to get stronger as the games goes on. You hate to ever take him off the field. I am a big believer of putting your best 11 guys on the field as many snaps as you can.

"That put Dri in a little big of a difficult spot being a rookie coming from a little smaller school. When you get guys like that, sometimes the transition time is a little longer than we all would like, himself included. I really feel with a year under his belt, even though there wasn’t great production anywhere; a year, plus another offseason and training camp, a full room in an NFL weight room, I think Dri will come back more experienced and still has that outstanding characteristic of speed.

"The important thing is that we do have a role for him if he is going to have a helmet on Sundays and he gets his five and six touches a game. Any one of those plays he has the chance to take it to the house with that speed. Let’s just have a little patience and let him continue to develop and we will definitely have a plan to get him touches throughout the season.”
