According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, the Pittsburgh Steelers are adding more speed to their wide receiving corps. According to Pelissero, the Steelers were so impressed with Mathew Sexton at the Michigan State pro day they decided to give him a shot.
Sexton went undrafted in 2020 but was wise to run at the Michigan State pro day this year because he caught Pittsburgh’s eye. The Steelers have been lacking elite speed on defense for several seasons and so Sexton should compete for a roster spot, potentially as a returner. This move could also be to allow Ray-Ray McCloud to focus more on playing wide receiver.
