Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught 3-of-7 targets for 25 yards in a 42-21 Wild Card loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Claypool failed to break any big plays in the loss. The second-year wideout managed to score just two touchdowns in 2021 after racking up 11 all-purpose scores in his rookie year. The Steelers will be moving on from Ben Roethlisberger in the offseason, which would most likely be a positive for Claypool as Roethlisberger simply no longer has the arm strength to get the ball deep downfield to his wideouts. Claypool has a chance to see a bounceback in 2022, depending on who ends up as Pittsburgh's next signal-caller.
