George Pickens ejection

Frustrations appeared to boil over for the Pittsburgh Steelers late in their loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, particularly for rookie wide receiver George Pickens.

Pickens was ejected after picking up an unnecessary roughness penalty late in the Steelers’ 37-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The wide receiver was on the field to try to recover an onside kick attempt, but when Cincinnati’s Tyler Boyd got to the ball first, Pickett went in and took a bit of a cheap shot with his helmet.

Pickens was ejected for the move, though it did not wind up mattering as the Bengals simply knelt and ran the clock out. The wide receiver’s mood probably was not helped by the fact that he dropped a likely touchdown catch moments earlier, though Pittsburgh still finished the drive with a score.

A second-round pick out of Georgia, nobody doubts Pickens’ outstanding talent, but there were some questions about his maturity. That led to him slipping a bit in the draft, so the Steelers will want to make sure moments like this do not become a habit.
