Steelers’ Justin Hunter Looking To Capitalize Of Chances With First Team

on

With Pittsburgh Steelers wideouts Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster missing some of the team’s OTA practices, and with Martavis Bryant on a new team, veteran reserve receiver Justin Hunter has been running with the first team, an opportunity to shine that he is not going to take lightly.

“I need every one of [these reps],” Hunter said, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. “It gives me another op to show what I’ve got against the first team. As long as I keep it consistently, I’ll be straight.”

Hunter will have to fend off 2nd round draft pick James Washington, who many believe was drafted to replace Bryant.

So far, Hunter has been using his 6’4 frame to make athletic plays in practice, showing that he is making a step forward in his development.
