PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers acquired wide receiver/returner Ryan Switzer and a 2019 sixth-round draft selection in a trade with the Oakland Raiders on Monday.

The Raiders received the Steelers’ fifth-round draft choice in the 2019 NFL Draft in exchange.

The 2017 fourth-round pick was traded from Dallas to Oakland in April for defensive lineman Jihad Ward.

After failing to earn a key role with his new organization, Switzer will now try to make his mark in Pittsburgh, potentially helping out in the return game.

He’ll likely land fifth or sixth on the wideout depth chart, assuming he even sticks on the 53-man roster says CBS Sports.

Switzer has caught just one pass for seven yards in the preseason.

The Steelers released wide receiver Justin Thomas to make room on the 90-man roster.
