Arizona Cardinals: 5 top free agent receivers

6 of 6

Markus Wheaton

Wheaton missed a lot of time in 2016 with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  He only played in three games this past season before going on injured reserve.

Wheaton has said he would love to remain with the Steelers and why not?  However he has made the comment he understands the business side of the NFL.

There is also the local connection.  Wheaton is from Chandler, Arizona where he was a standout at Chandler High School. He went to college at Oregon State.

In 2015, Wheaton had 44 receptions for 749-yards and five touchdowns.  Again, those are numbers the Cardinals could likely live with if they brought him in.

The easy money though is Wheaton remaining in Pittsburgh.  The feeling could be mutual given his performance over the first three years of his career prior to 2016.
