Steelers Steelers Sign WR Donte Moncrief Published 5 months ago on March 14, 2019 By Donnie Druin 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailEarly Thursday morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Donte Moncrief have agreed on a two-year deal. Moncrief is expected to come in and contribute immediately following the departure of Antonio Brown. Moncrief, at 25 years old, has 200 career receptions 2,543 yards and 21 touchdowns. Moncrief was the Colts third round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft and spent four seasons in Indianapolis before a brief stint with Jacksonville in 2018. Moncrief has experience scoring in Pittsburgh, as ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler points out. Mention Steelers Now and save $10! Donte Moncrief — who’s joining Steelers on a two-year deal, per @AdamSchefter — won’t adequately replace Antonio Brown (not many can) but gets chance to re-establish himself after struggles in Jacksonville. Moncrief has size, speed and 3 TDs in five career games vs. PIT. — Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) March 14, 2019 The financial details of Moncrief’s deal have yet to be released, however after spending nearly $16 million on cap space to sign players, the deal isn’t imagined to break the bank considering the Steelers typical spending habits. While many fans coveted the talents of free agents Tyrell Williams and Golden Tate, SteelersNow included Moncrief in our free agency preview for the wide receiver position. The signing does not necessarily mean Pittsburgh will deviate from drafting a receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, yet fills a much-needed hole after the departure of Brown. 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:2019 NFL Free AgencyDonte MoncrieffeaturedSteelers Up Next Steelers Re-Sign WR Eli Rogers, DL Daniel McCullers Don't Miss Steelers Should Use Added Draft Picks to Move Up Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Steelers Sights and Sounds: Home Turf Exclusive with former Steelers QB Landry Jones Steelers Roster Projection after Preseason Week 2 Poll: Who Should Be Steelers Backup Quarterback?
