Ike Hilliard is the new wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The club announced the move on Tuesday. Hilliard replaces Darryl Drake, who passed away last August during the early days of training camp.

The Pittsburgh Steelers hired Ike Hilliard as their wide receivers coach, the team announced Tuesday. Hilliard, 43, has spent the past six seasons in his second stint with the Washington Redskins (2014-19). Hilliard recorded 546 receptions for 6,397 yards and 35 touchdowns in 161 games over 12 seasons with the New York Giants (1997-2004) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-08).

We don't think he's at the end of the road,” Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said to Dale Lolley of DK Pittsburgh Sports. Roethlisberger was a major part of the heralded 2004 NFL Draft, selected 11th overall by the Steelers. Eli Manning - who went first overall after the New York Giants traded up for him - announced his retirement, while the Los Angeles Chargers are moving on from Philip Rivers after spending his whole career with the organization.

Yahoo Sports NFL senior writers Terez Paylor, Kimberley A. Martin and Charles Robinson select games this week that will leave us buzzing heading into Monday. This game checks every box for a clear-cut, must-watch NFL game, and it should be a doozy as the winner wins the NFC West. While Seattle is coming off a stunning loss to a 5-9-1 Cardinals team, they'll bounce back this weekend, especially given the emotional boost from the return of running back Marshawn Lynch.

If there's one thing that's become painfully obvious in the absence of James Conner, it's that he is the core of the Steelers Offense. Conner has missed the team's last two outings due to a shoulder injury sustained versus the Miami Dolphins. Since that time, the Steelers have struggled to pack a punch in the run game and have missed the safety valve he provides Mason Rudolph in the passing game.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph left the game against Baltimore after suffering a concussion following a hit to the chin by Ravens safety Earl Thomas in the third quarter on Sunday. Trailing 17-13 and facing third-and-11 at the Pittsburgh 12 midway through the third quarter, Rudolph lined up in the shotgun and dropped back to pass. The play broke down and Rudolph scrambled to his left, stepping up the field in the process.

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II will chair the NFL's compensation committee, which among other things negotiates the salary of top league executives, including Commissioner Roger Goodell. Rooney replaces Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who stepped down in May, and will serve for one year. Also on the compensation group will be Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill, new to the committee; Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam; New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft; and New York Giants co-owner John Mara.

That's no guarantee that will happen in Week 3, of course, but Rudolph looked pretty comfortable, and I think the 49ers defense is more permeable than Tampa Bay and Cincinnati showed. They've been good, but not so good that I wouldn't take a shot on Rudolph or even a Steelers mini-stack in tournaments this week. It's funny that Jones is already more expensive than Derek Carr and Joe Flacco on DraftKings; it's been obvious that it was only a matter of time before this day was upon us.

Three things that matter Giants name Jones starting QB Eli Manning's inconsistencies finally caught up to him as the New York Giants benched the veteran quarterback after their 0-2 start to the season. Now, the Giants will see if their surprising selection of Daniel Jones out of Duke with the sixth overall pick in April will pay off. Manning's accomplishments over the last almost 15 years as a starter have been overshadowed in recent seasons and he has thrown for 556 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in 2019.
