Markus Wheaton has a clear path to become the Pittsburgh Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver this season, but he takes an unusually humble approach for a player at that position.

“There’s a lot of guys chasing that spot and hopefully I can get it first and go from there,” Wheaton said. “They’re pushing all of us to get better, and whoever wants it the most will take it, so I’m going to do what I can to get that spot.” 

“I’m excited to see what he can do,” Ben Roethlisberger said. “He’s a guy that wants to prove that he can be a starter.”
