Steelers' Sammie Coates: Moving down depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coates (hand, groin) is likely the Steelers fourth or fifth receiver after a disappointing 2016 season, Paul Zeise of The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports.

Coates was supposed to be Pittsburgh's No. 3 receiver but recorded just 21 catches in 14 games last season. The return of Martavis Bryant doesn't help Coates' status. Coates played in 28.9 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps in 2016 but he could see that number drop in what will be his third season. His main role may be as the team's primary kick returner while also serving as a depth receiver in 2017.

Steelers' Martavis Bryant: Reinstated Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant was reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday, the Steelers' official site reports.

Bryant can now return to all offseason team activities and facilities after being suspended all of last year for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Prior to the beginning of the regular season, the league will review Bryant's progress during the offseason. As long as no issues arise, he will then be cleared to participate in all regular season activities. The wideout will compete with Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Antonio Brown, a spot he held before last season's suspension.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: Has fifth-year option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier's fifth-year option, worth $8.7 million, was picked up by the Steelers on Monday, Ray Fittipaldo of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Shazier has been a consistent playmaker for the steelers since being selected in the first round of the 2014 draft. He 87 tackles, including 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and nine passes defensed, including three interceptions, while playing in 13 games in 2016. His fifth-year option will keep him under contract with Pittsburgh through the 2018 season.

Steelers' Martavis Bryant: No word on reinstatement yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers have yet to receive word from the league on whether Bryant (suspension) will be reinstated for this season, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Bryant, who received a year-long suspension last March for violating the league's substance abuse policy, filed for reinstatement Jan. 28 and met last week with the NFL's Management Council. After detailing a plan to avoid a relapse, Bryant's next step is to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell or one of his representatives. At the moment, it's unclear when he may be extended that opportunity, leaving the Steelers unsure of his 2017 status as this week's draft quickly approaches.

Steelers' Ross Cockrell: Signs contract tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell, a restricted free agent, signed his contract tender with the Steelers on Monday, Ray Fittipaldo of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The deal is for one year and will earn Cockrell roughly $1.97 million. The three-year veteran has started 26 games for the Steelers across the past two seasons and will look to defend his spot on the first-team unit throughout the summer considering 2015 second-rounder Senquez Golson is finally back to full health.
