Finding the right mix post-JuJu a task for Steelers

The Steelers played their first game in the post-JuJu Smith-Schuster era -- at least this season -- in Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over the Seahawks.

And the immediate beneficiaries were Ray-Ray McCloud and Pat Freiermuth.

McCloud and Freiermuth both saw career highs in snap counts in the game, with McCloud playing 52 out of 75 offensive snaps and Freiermuth seeing 45.

Thing is, that doesn't mean that will be the mix moving forward -- at least not for McCloud -- though the Steelers might have figured out how to best use Freiermuth, their second-round pick this year.
