UNITTY TWP., Pa. — Other players have made the highlight-reel grabs, but Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson has been quietly shining through one week of training camp at St. Vincent College, and he seems to have corrected a big issue from his play in the 2022 season.

While George Pickens and Joey Porter Jr. have been going at in an epic battle on side of the field, things have been much more low-key across the way. But that doesn’t mean that Kenny Pickett hasn’t been looking to Johnson this training camp. In fact, he probably has been the most productive wide receiver in Steelers team periods thus far.

Nick Farabaugh broke down how Johnson has quietly showed his improvement, along with the other highlights from the second Steelers practice in pads of the 2023 season.
