Steelers WR Predicts Major Year for Himself and Team

The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to bounce back in 2022.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a lot of uncertainty this season, but one player who remains confident is wide receiver Chase Claypool. 

During an interview with I AM ATHLETE podcast, Claypool said he'll be a top-three wide receiver in the NFL this season - or that he already is. He also gave a stat line to backup how well he'll play in 2022. 

Those numbers, if the third-year wideout hits his mark, will be: 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. 

"My second year, I was a better football player than I was my first year. The plays just didn't work out. Some of the plays didn't go my way, I didn't make some plays. As a football player, knowing what to do, knowing where to be, I was better. So, I'm going to be better this year. I know for a facto, I'm not like the rest of the guys in the NFL. I know I'm a top five receiver. I know I'm a top three receiver."

Claypool also predicted the Steelers have a comeback year after struggling in 2021. With a new quarterback under center and changes on both sides of the ball, he predicts Pittsburgh finishes with a 13-4 record. 

Do you think Claypool hits his mark and the Steelers finish with 13 wins? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
