WR Justin Hunter is trying to become that deep threat for the Steelers, embracing a golden opportunity after they traded Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders at the NFL Draft.
At 6-foot-4, Hunter is the type of tall target that Ben Roethlisberger loves. Hunter received an endorsement from the quarterback after the game, despite the miscommunication that cost them a second scoring play.
The issue with Hunter has been inconsistency. The story pointed out a great play Hunter made for a TD against the Titans, but also added there were two mistakes before that easily could have led to more big plays. Roethlisberger has shown confidence in Hunter which the receiver appreciates, the story said, and the hope is it leads to chemistry between the two during the season.
