The Jets came up as a potential option for Moncrief, but it looks like he’ll get a chance to carve out a role in the Steelers’ offense now that they’ve moved on from Antonio Brown.
Moncrief, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Colts back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.745 million contract before agreeing to a one-year, $9.6 million fully-guaranteed with the Jaguars last year.
Moncrief was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the second straight year.
In 2017, Moncrief appeared in 12 games for the Colts and caught 26 passes for 391 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 88 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.
We had him featured in our Top 100 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.
