Second-year WR Sammie Coates looking good in camp-- Tue Aug 9 9:12 am --
Steelers excited about sophomore receiver's role
Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports: "Sammie Coates has made all types of catches since the Steelers put on the pads and started doing something other than running around in shorts. He has made two-handed catches above his helmet, one-handed sideline grabs around a defender, even laid out his 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame to catch a deep ball in the end zone."(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
FF Today's Take:Coates, a third-round draft choice in 2015, is slated to take over the duties of Martavis Bryant, who has been suspended for the 2016 season. The tools are there, but the second-year receiver could take some time to earn the looks from Big Ben.
