The Steelers were without Eli Rogers for most of the 2018 season as he recovered from a torn ACL that happened during the Steelers playoff exit in 2017.
There were many questions regarding Rogers contract and if he would be forced to stay with the Steelers for another year. The thought was that his contract would toll meaning it would roll over to 2019 because he wasn’t active for enough games to accrue a year of service.
We find out now that that probably wasn’t the case, because Rogers signed a new two year contract this morning.
Rogers will compete with Ryan Switzer for the fourth receiver role which should see an increase in targets with Antonio Brown out of the picture.
