    He was once linked to the Steelers a couple years back. He struggles to get separation from corners. He is slow to build speed, but has ridiculous jumping measurables. What are the chances at 6’5, 245lbs he could become a TE - possibly taking over Jessie James role next year. With experience at wr, he has better hands and route running ability than James (better than McDonald too) and would be a mismatch for linebackers. I see him playing a Jordan reed, young Jimmy Graham type role - a red zone possession weapon. At this stage in his career, WR has not worked out, but I have to wonder if his position should have been TE all along.

    I should also add he’s 27 and after this year, my guess he could be signed fairly cheaply.

    hes slow, lazy and overrated. he wouldnt do well in pittsburgh. he wont work with a rookie qb to become a good tandem. could u imagine him blocking downfield and being a team guy? aint happening. he made a big stink leaving carolina and it turns out he just sucks. dosnt matter how big he is. he dosnt have any heart

    I would have traded for him before the trade deadline so I am 100% on board. He might not be a true #1 but the Steelers don't need him to be. They need him to be a #3 and redzone target.

    He doesn’t work hard at being a WR, can’t imagine him putting the work in to learn a new position.

    Yeah, not sure what's going on with this guy. I thought this guy was going to be a stud in this league, he just hasn't every put it together. Could being around the likes of AB and Juju have a positive influence on him, I don't know. But, if you bring him in, who do you get rid of?

    Not to worry, he'll be in New England and paired up with Josh Gordon before the Steelers knew what hit them.

    There is some kind of ironic joke to be made about this. Bills trade Watkins and sign Benjamin who is then cut and signs with the same team Watkins plays for.
