RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Limas Sweed.

2010

Sweed was rarely used in 2009 and missed the last few weeks of the season due to personal issues. It was hoped 2010 would be a step forward for the young receiver, but he has been placed on IR due to a ruptured Achilles' Heel.

2009

Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes have the Steelers' top two wideout slots locked up, but who ends up as the No. 3 guy (replacing Nate Washington) has yet to be determined. At 6-5, Sweed has the size to develop into a red zone weapon for the team and it's a good sign that he showed improvement in the steam's spring practices. He's a dart to be sure, but remember he was considered a first-round talent heading into last year's draft and the team seems keen on providing Ben Roethlisberger with the sort of big body at receiver that has been lacking since the departure of Plaxico Burress.

2008

Sweed will start the 2008 season as Pittsburgh's fourth wideout behind Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes and Nate Washington, but should still see action in the red zone. He could pass Washington at some point in the season and, standing five inches taller than both Ward and Holmes, would have the potential to haul in a good number of touchdowns.
