The Pittsburgh Steelers have added depth at wide receiver, signing former Jacksonville Jaguar Donte Moncrief to a two-year deal. The team also re-signed veteran backup Eli Rogers to a two-year contract.

Pittsburgh is in search of fresh blood at the position after trading star Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders.

Moncrief has 200 receptions for 2,543 yards in five seasons, four with Indianapolis and one with Jacksonville. He caught 48 passes for 668 yards and three scores last season with the Jaguars.

Rogers, who made the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016, missed most of last season while recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee in Pittsburgh’s playoff loss to Jacksonville in January 2018. Rogers, who works mainly out of the slot, has 78 career receptions for 822 yards and four touchdowns.
