Steelers' Wide Receivers The Best In AFC North

Jamison Hensley of ESPN ranks the Steelers' wide receivers the best in the AFC North. That should come as no surprise, of course, since the Steelers have two dynamic and productive young receivers in Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown.

I'm not sure if you heard but Wallace is a restricted free agent. He could get pursued by the New England Patriots or San Francisco 49ers if the Steelers are unable to put the franchise tag on him. A decision has to be made on [Hines] Ward, who is scheduled to make $4 million this season after his lowest catch total since his 1998 rookie season.

Ward's future as a Steeler is in doubt, but Pittsburgh should be able to find a way to keep Wallace. If they do, they'll likely remain at the top of the pile for the foreseeable future, although A.J. Green alone also makes the Cincinnati Bengals well worth watching.
