Training camp cut watch: WR Sammie Coates

NFL.com comprised its list of 13 potential surprise training camp casualties, including Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates, falling in at No. 10 on the list:

Gregg Rosenthal:

‘A year ago at this time, Coates was expected to fill the shoes of Martavis Bryant as the team’s prime deep threat. Coates did so with 21 catches and a league-leading “drop rate,” according to Pro Football Focus. Now Bryant is back and Eli Rogers is locked into the slot receiver role, leaving Coates, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Justin Hunter and Cobi Hamilton to fight for jobs. Offseason groin surgery didn’t help Coates’ case. Neither did the second-round selection of JuJu Smith-Schuster.’
