Diontae Johnson Says He’s Talked To Kenny Pickett About Getting More Involved: ‘Just Trying To Get More Opportunities’

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson hasn’t had the season many Steelers fans have expected. Johnson, who had 107 receptions for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns this season, has yet to record a game with more than 84 receiving yards and has a rather pedestrian 51 receptions for 456 yards through seven games this year. Johnson talked to the media today about talking to rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett about building their relationship and seeing what he can do to get more looks.

“Really just having that one-on-one with him, just trying to see what I can do. Trying to get in his vision more, try to get him to look my way,” Johnson said via Chris Adamski of TribLive.
