Steelers receivers believe they're still potent in Pittsburgh _ even without Mike Wallace

Mike Wallace took his speed to Miami. The remaining Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers believe they will be just fine without the former ringleader.

Wallace walked away from the Steelers for a lucrative contract with the Dolphins, leaving Pittsburgh without one of the NFL's best deep threats. The Steelers say they will still be able to extend defenses without Wallace, they might just do it a little differently.

Veteran Plaxico Burress says the Steelers have one of the most "feared" receivers in the league in Antonio Brown. Brown was in the midst of a career season in 2012 before being slowed by injury. He downplayed his role as a leader, saying he's just focused on staying healthy and helping Pittsburgh bounce back from a disappointing 8-8 season.
