All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.
15 • Trey Griffey, first-year wide receiver
Last year: Spent the entire season on the Steelers’ practice squad after being cut at the end of training camp. Was originally signed by the Steelers in January of 2018 after spending training camp in 2017 with the Miami Dolphins.
Stats: Finished the 2018 preseason with four catches for 44 yards.
Rolled into camp wearing the digits of his slightly more famous father.

Camp outlook: With the Steelers moving on from veteran special teams contributor Darrius Heyward-Bey, there is an opportunity for Griffey to step up and secure a job on the 53-man roster. Griffey is a bigger, more-physical receiver that projects better as a gunner and kickoff team ace, while Holton is more of a returner.
Projected role: Holton has more NFL experience, but Griffey is more familiar with the Steelers offense. If Holton picks things up quickly, his elite speed may be too much for the Steelers to turn down. Griffey should have a secure spot on the practice squad if he doesn’t make the team.
