Former Eastern Michigan WR Mathew Sexton is signing with the #Steelers, source said, after blazing a low-4.3s 40 at Michigan State pro day last week. Undrafted in 2020, Sexton flashed return skills in The Spring League. #Bills, #Patriots worked him out too, but he’s headed to PIT pic.twitter.com/t3o0sRn6Hd

In four years at Eastern Michigan, Sexton had 100 receptions for 1,135 yards and nine touchdowns.
“With the cancellation of the majority of pro days in 2020, players who are not currently under contract by an NFL team and would have participated last year have been allowed to return in order to showcase their skills.” –
This signing comes just days after the Steelers also signed Tyler Simmons to add to the wide receiver room. Camp bodies, or potential special teams/return men for Pittsburgh? Let us know what yinz think of these new additions in the comment section below!
