In Donte Moncrief's first trip to Pittsburgh as a player, the then-rookie torched an aging Steelers secondary for 113 yards from 7 catches and a touchdown. The terms aren't yet known but the length of the deal is for two years.

Moncrief was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the third round of the 2014 draft and left for the Jacksonville Jaguars after the 2017 season.

Moncrief signed a one-year contract worth a guaranteed $9.6 million with the Jaguars last March.

Moncrief will join a Steelers receiving corps that includes JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, Ryan Switzer, Eli Rogers, Diontae Spencer and Ka'Raun White.

In 14 games started with the franchise, Moncrief recorded 48 catches for a total of 668 yards and three touchdowns, almost doubling his production levels from 2017. He averages 12.7 yards per reception and has a career long of 80 yards. He had 152 receptions for 1,875 yards and 18 touchdowns in four seasons with the Colts.

The report comes less than 24 hours after the trade that sent All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders became official.
