ANALYSIS
Coates' time with the team didn't last very long, as he just signed with the Chiefs back in February. He was always going to be hard-pressed to make Kansas City's final roster, as the team boasted plenty of talented pass catchers before his arrival.

2015
By hooking on with the Texans during the offseason, Coates joined his third team in three seasons. He caught just six passes for 70 yards while with the Browns in 2017 and has a total of 28 catches over 32 NFL games, a career marred by injuries. Coates said he's healthy for the first time in two years entering training camp. There are a couple of schools of thought with respect to Coates. He's a field-stretching wideout, but that skill duplicates starter Will Fuller, suggesting a very minor role. The flipside of that is that the Texans had several injuries to targets last season and only one receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, caught more than 29 passes. There's potential for Coates to work his way into a regular gig as a third/fourth receiver and more if injuries strike again.
Coates ultimately disappointed in 2016, when he was supposed to step in and replace the field-stretching Martavis Bryant. The two profile similarly, so the idea had merit and through Week 5 Coates certainly looked the part, averaging 84.2 yards per game on 22.2 yards per catch. However, the rest of his season was characterized by injuries and a horrendous case of the drops that caused him to tumble down the depth chart. He's behind Antonio Brown, Bryant and Eli Rogers for now, with Juju Smith-Schuster the odds-on favorite to secure the No. 4 job. After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-July, Coates' cause has been hindered further. When healthy, he'll compete with Darrius Heyward-Bey, Justin Hunter and Cobi Hamilton, among others, for what will likely be one or two roster spots come final cuts.
With Martavis Bryant suspended for the year, Coates has a chance to slot in as the team's No. 3 receiver. At 6-1, 212, last year's third-round pick has decent size and 4.43 40 speed. He had problems with drops in college, but his reviews in practice as a rookie were glowing, and he had two catches for 61 yards in the Steelers' playoff loss to the Broncos. Veteran Darrius Heyward-Bey is still around, but he's been a bit player for most of his career, so Coates could win the job with a strong camp. While Antonio Brown will dominate the targets, Coates could even push No. 2 Markus Wheaton if he plays well. And when Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, this is one of the league's elite passing offenses.
Enamored by his explosive speed, the Steelers selected Coates in the third round of the draft to compete with Markus Wheaton behind starting receivers Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. The knock on Coates is his hands, dropping one of every nine balls thrown his way for Auburn in 2014. On a more positive note, his ability to outrun coverage gives Ben Roethlisberger another deep downfield threat, making Coates a boom-or-bust fantasy player.
