Top NFL prospect tells Steelers to ‘come get me’ so he can reunite with college teammate Kenny Pickett
Before Jordan Addison transferred to USC, he and Kenny Pickett produced some magic.
The wide receiver spent his first two college seasons at the University of Pittsburgh under Pickett, and Addison made a name for himself.
In 2021, Addison caught 100 passes, including 17 touchdowns, for 1,593 yards, and his efforts earned him the Biltnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver.

Pickett was the 20th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Edison transferred west where he caught 59 passes for 875 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games.
Now, Edison wants to bring the magic back to western Pennsylvania.
“Man, if we meet again, it would be nice,” Addison said, via ESPN. “That would be great. Really easy transition. Come get me.
“That will help the transition a lot. Just having your old quarterback. You already have a relationship, No. 1, and then that trust factor. So, with him, once you’re running your routes, he’s your relying on. at a certain place at the right time.”

The Steelers drafted tight end George Pickens last year to join Pickett, and receiver Deonte Johnson’s two-year extension begins with the 2023 season. The Steelers sent Chase Claypool to the Chicago Bears for the 32nd pick this year, and they already own the 17th pick.
In his rookie season, Pickett played in 13 games and threw seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. He completed 63% of his passes for 2,404 yards while rushing for 237 more and scoring three times on the ground.
