Rogers Provides Slot Weapon for Steelers
A former undrafted free agent out of Louisville, Rogers won the Steelers' slot receiver job in training camp and is off to a solid start. Prior to the injury, he had nine catches for 100 yards and a touchdown.
Rogers said, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com:
I feel like I'm a great illusionist if you will. I'm deceptive in my route running and I love that. It's all about angles and what the defense is looking at. If I get past a guy and I stick him and go to the post and I tuck my chin like I'm going to the post, he's going to take off because that's what he's seeing, he's seeing emotions, and he really believes I'm going that way. I just like that because it's fun to me.
With Markus Wheaton out, Rogers' return is much-needed for the Steelers.
