Latest NewsSteelers | Sammie Coates to compete for job (Wed Apr 26, 10:12 AM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates will have to compete with WR Justin Hunter for a roster spot after WR Martavis Bryant was reinstated. Our View: This is a bit of shock after all of the offseason buzz around Coates last year. He should be able to hold off Hunter, but there might be some disappointment with the development of the 2015 third-rounder in the organization if he is really competing to stay on the roster. His dynasty value has taken a huge hit with the reinstatement of Martavis Bryant this week.
