Steelers adding to their wide receiver room, signing Scotty Miller

The Pittsburgh Steelers have needed to add to their wide receiver room this offseason, and while they’ve done so it hasn’t truly made fans feel comfortable heading into the new season.

While additions like Roman Wilson in the 2024 NFL Draft, along with Quez Watkins and Van Jefferson via free agency have helped with the quantity of receivers, the quality is what is concerning for most fans. Wednesday the team made another addition to the receiver room, and the latest addition might not move the needle much for the fan base.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN the Steelers are signing Scotty Miller to a one-year deal.

For those who don’t know much about Miller’s NFL career, he was a 6th Round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of Bowling Green in 2019. He spent four seasons in Tampa Bay before signing with the Atlanta Falcons, and Arthur Smith as his head coach, in 2023.

During those five seasons, Miller accumulated the following statistics:

Games: 67
Receptions: 85
Yards: 1,085
Average Per Catch: 12.8
TDs: 6

Miller is a fast slot receiver, and it makes you wonder what the Steelers are thinking when it comes to how they will deploy their wide receivers in 2024. George Pickens is clearly the team’s No. 1 wide receiver heading into the upcoming season, but who will be considered the WR2 on the depth chart?

Van Jefferson? Roman Wilson?

The Steelers still have a large quantity of wide receivers, but the quality still remains in question. However, with Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamp on the horizon, we might start to see what Smith wants to do with this wide receiving corps when they get on the field and start learning the new playbook.
