This seven year veteran will have to step up with the absence of Martavis Bryant, who is serving a year long suspension for second offense of drug policy. In his third year with the Steelers, Heyward-Bey will be looking to be targeted a lot more than his first two.
Like every team they have that next man up mentality and Bey likely be that next man up. His 6-2 frame gives Big Ben that big target and he has the speed to match it. Being a veteran on the team means stepping up and helping the younger guys. Age might be his only downfall at this point.
