UNITY TWP., Pa. — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens spoke to the media, including Alan Saunders of Steelers Now on Wednesday, and he broke down his viral catch over rookie cornerback Joey Porter Jr. and broke down how he thinks the training camp rivalry between the two players will end up making both of them better.
“I kinda reacted late and made another crazy catch,” Pickett said. “That was perfect coverage.”
