Steelers wide receivers talk job security over Twitter

Mike Tomlin had to step in and separate his players after a few got into a Twitter fight on Friday night.

Bryant, who was reinstated conditionally only last week after serving a one-year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy, started up a tweetstorm just moments after the Steelers selected USC wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster with the 62nd overall pick. If Martavis Bryant faces any further complications, Smith-Schuster has the talent to lay claim to the WR2 role in Pittsburgh.

Immediately after the pick, Bryant said on Twitter that Smith-Shuster would replace Coates and not him in the lineup.

A chastened Bryant deleted the offending tweet, but Coates had a reminder for his coach.

The ACC's Offensive Player of the Year in 2014, Conner suffered a knee injury in Pitt's first game of 2015, then was diagnosed with Hodgkins' lymphoma later in the year. He finished his career with 213 receptions for 3,092 yards and 25 touchdowns. JuJu Smith-Schuster is the first receiver the team has drafted in the first two rounds since 2008.

"He's a good-size receiver, very productive out there, " Haley said. I hope the guys that we play against are sentimental because he is going to share some sentiments with them.

The Steelers often have cited their desire to take younger players because their bodies are still maturing, and their potential has not yet been fully tapped.

"When you have great competition, you tend to see the cream rise to the top".

A fan tweeted to Martavis Bryant, a fourth-year receiver whom the National Football League just conditionally reinstated after a season-long drug suspension.

He will take some much needed pressure off of All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Outside of Swann, who is also the current USC athletic director, the Steelers drafted one other USC receiver in the fourth round in 1979 - Calvin Sweeney, who ended up playing eight seasons for them.
