Free-agent wide receiver Eli Rogers will re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year contract

Free-agent wide receiver Eli Rogers will re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year contract, multiple media outlets reported on Wednesday.

Rogers is working his way back from a torn ACL sustained in the Steelers’ 45-42 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the playoffs last season.

The 25-year-old Rogers had only 18 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown in 2017 while serving as the No. 4 receiver in Pittsburgh.

Rogers will move to third on the depth chart behind six-time Pro Bowl selection Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Martavis Bryant was traded to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft during the offseason.

Rogers, who was undrafted out of Louisville in 2015, has 66 catches for 743 yards with four touchdowns since entering the NFL. His best season came in 2016, when he had 48 receptions for 589 yards with three scores.
