  Steelers | Two WRs may compete for one spot    Mon May 11, 07:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Deon Cain and Ryan Switzer may compete for one roster spot during training camp.

Footballguys view: They are two different types of receivers that's for sure. Cain is the downfield threat who can fly by defenders and track the ball. Switzer is the small, waterbug receiver who can use quickness on underneath routes. We'll see which type of receiver the Steelers prefer to keep near the end of the bench.

  Steelers | Two Steelers designated to return    Thu Dec 26, 11:11 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers FB Roosevelt Nix (knee) and WR Ryan Switzer (back) were designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Nix gives them more power in the backfield, while Switzer gives them another slot option at the wide receiver position and potential return man. Both players would be eligible to play in the Divisional Round of the playoffs if the Steelers make it and advance.

  Steelers | Ryan Switzer working in the slot    Tue Jul 16, 08:57 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Ryan Switzer is working on playing in the slot this offseason. He figures to battle WR Eli Rogers for repetitions there in training camp.

Footballguys view: Switzer is a slot guy, so it makes sense that he could win that job in training camp. In 2018, Switzer had 36 catches for 253 receiving yards and one touchdown. Those totals are around where he should be projected this year. Even without Antonio Brown, there might not be much of a bump for Switzer because of rookie Diontae Johnson and free agent addition Donte Moncrief.

  Steelers | Eli Rogers on the bubble?    Fri Jun 21, 09:17 PM

  Steelers | Ryan Switzer fighting for spot    Fri Jun 21, 09:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Ryan Switzer is likely competing for WR Eli Rogers to be the final receiver kept on the 53-man roster, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.

Footballguys view: The Steelers could target the slot receiver more often with Antonio Brown gone. Switzer is the more physically gifted player and can contribute as a returner, while Rogers has more experience with Ben Roethlisberger. The winner is unlikely to be relevant in fantasy leagues without multiple injuries to Steelers receivers/Vance McDonald.

  Raiders | Oakland trades Ryan Switzer    Mon Aug 27, 12:55 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Ryan Switzer was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Aug. 27, according to a source. It is not known what the Raiders received in return.

Footballguys view: The Raiders traded with the Cowboys for Switzer (a 2017 fourth-round pick) back in April. Switzer wasn't going to do much as a receiver no matter where he was playing, and his main role is on special teams as a returner.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh acquires Ryan Switzer    Mon Aug 27, 12:52 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Ryan Switzer was acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Aug. 27, according to a source. It is not known what the Raiders received in return.

Footballguys view: Switzer was a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017 and is now on his third team. He's a small slot receiver with great quickness and a small catch radius. Switzer's main value should come as a return man although he did not impress in that department during three preseason games with the Raiders.

  Raiders | Ryan Switzer working in the slot    Thu Jul 5, 11:39 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Ryan Switzer has been a 'force' as a slot receiver in addition to his work as a kick and punt returner, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Footballguys view: We'll see if he can make any headway in this crowded group, which contains Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant. For now, we expect him to mostly have impact on special teams and wouldn't bother drafting him in early drafts.

  Raiders | Oakland acquires Ryan Switzer    Sat Apr 28, 05:51 PM

The Oakland Raiders acquired WR Ryan Switzer from the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, April 28, in exchange for DE Jihad Ward.

Footballguys view: Switzer is the player dynasty owners (in super deep leagues) like. He's a quick, shifty slot receiver who has a bit of Danny Amendola to his game. The Raiders have a stacked group of WRs, adding Jordy Nelson in free agency and trading for both Switzer and Martavis Bryant during the 2018 NFL draft.
