Maybe a development from Ross's breakout game.
#1
John Ross's Game vs Seattle was a long time coming
But it could impact the depth chart roster.
Mainly Alex Erickson.
Remember how in the off season some had Alex
as the 3rd WR behind AJ and Tyler.
Well not anymore.
Your 3 WRs now are AJ Tyler Ross.
All of a sudden Erickson is pushed down.
But now you have Willis probally the 4th WR.
And now you throw in Simmons letting Phillips return
Kicks now.
I see Erickson getting fewer snaps and that last WR spot on
GameDay is between Cooper and Erickson.
I don't see the Bengals cutting Auden Tate
Anytime soon.
Like I said before Erickson is a decent
Player but I think ZT is looking to infuse
More speed in this team.

Willis: 3 catches for 30 yards
Erickson: 4 catches for 28 yards.

He may get fewer snaps than Willis at the moment but if he keeps outperforming Willis on those fewer snaps that will eventually change. You certainly can't claim that Willis is forcing him down the depth chart just yet.

If
ZT
is looking
for
speed
he will
keep
Erickson
and
release
Tate.

Alex ran
a 4.44

at his
Pro day
which

Erickson ran a 4.44 at his Pro Day?
According to NFL.com, he ran a 4.52 at his Pro Day...

That's still obviously (much) faster than Tate though.

I think unless/until Cooper and/or Phillips establishes himself as THE return specialist, you have to keep Erickson. Maybe get rid of him after this season, as there's only a dead cap of $166k in 2020.

That is the problem with Pro Days

Packers GM Ted Thompson and 30 other NFL scouts looked on as Erickson took over Pro Day. Erickson ran his 40-yard dash in a time of 4.44 seconds, which would have placed him fifth among receiver prospects at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. His 3.88 second pro-shuttle also would have placed him second among receivers at the Combine.

I like Erickson, even with the fumble.  He only fumbled once all of last year.  However, having Tate active on gameday gives them another key weapon in the red zone and short yardage until Eifert is 100%.  Eifert still seems a bit sluggish, but I have faith he will come on strong.

Erickson will be around until the next latest and greatest thing comes along. Then he'll either get cut in camp or elect for free agency and become another teams next latest and greatest thing. Short of serious injury he'll be employed in the league awhile.

Taylor brought in Cooper and now Phillips is going to return kicks.
It all adds up to Erickson being on borrowed time on kick and punt returns,
Kick returners get replaced all the time
Erickson plays hard.but as some point you have to start making plays
That can impact field position turn the game around
He's not that special of a player
He's middle of the road

I still feel Erickson is 4th best receiver on this team. He is extremely quick on short routes that is an above average trait. He would probably be 2nd best receiver on Steelers. I'd take our starting 3 over their number 1

Willis looked better last week to me than Erickson ever did.

One game and he’s now an established receiver. I just don’t get that in the least. My eyes need to see more but hey, I guess now he is a dependable starter. A smart GM would have extended him on the plane ride home.

This... I don't even mean to sound like a smart ass, but the guy has a history of missing a ton of games,and he's had all of one good games in his career. I hope he develops a trend tomorrow, but I'm not releasing guys on his account yet

Ross is also gonna be seeing some of Richard Sherman tomorrow.

Probably accurate. Erickson is not a #3 WR in the NFL on a good team. He's probably a 5 and returner. Nothing wrong with that.

I doubt he was ever going to put up #3 level WR production.

I probably did come off as a smart ass but I just like to see guys earn the praise that they get. He basically made a baby step and had far from a complete game. They are good signs but his past says to cautiously hope for continuous improvement.
