Pittsburgh Steelers

Before he was drafted by the Cardinals in 2004, Larry Fitzgerald made a name for himself as a member of the football team at the University of Pittsburgh.

Fitzgerald only spent two years at the school, but his time at Pitt is still talked about to this day. In his two college seasons, the future Hall of Famer caught 161 passes for 2,677 yards and 34 touchdowns.

It seems safe to say that those in Pittsburgh who used to root for Fitzgerald in his college days would love to see the legendary wide receiver suit up for their local NFL team.

If Fitzgerald were to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers this year, Still Curtain’s Tommy Jaggi believes the veteran receiver and his reliable hands would give Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a “security blanket,” out on the field to turn to when other targets are covered.

Jaggi also admits that Fitzgerald probably wouldn’t be any higher on Pittsburgh’s wide receiver depth chart than fourth or fifth. If the former Arizona pass-catcher is okay with that role, then perhaps we could see him suiting up in black and gold next season.
