PFN identifies Steelers as best fit for WR Michael Gallup

So far this offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have traded away their top wide receiver Diontae Johnson and signed three veterans to replace him. But I’m not sure anyone views Van Jefferson or Quez Watkins as starters in this offense and Cordarrelle Patterson is as much a running back and kick returner as anything else.

The free-agent market for wide receivers isn’t nearly as robust as it was at the start of free agency but there are still some names who could have an impact on the new-look Steelers offense. The one we all hear about is former Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd but Pro Football Network targeted a different receiver as the best fit for the Steelers and that’s former Dallas Cowboys pass catcher Michael Gallup.

Michael Gallup hasn’t been the same player since tearing his ACL in 2022 but has a 1,000-yard campaign (2019) on his ledger. The 6’1″, 200-pounder can give the Steelers more size on the perimeter and wouldn’t prevent them from drafting an early-round WR. Gallup has drawn free agent interest from the Panthers and Ravens since being released by the Dallas Cowboys in early March.

At this point, it’s Boyd or nobody for us. We would much rather see Pittsburgh draft a player in the second or third round of the 2024 NFL draft than roll the dice on a player who has lost a step or two since his ACL injury.
