Default Randle El a starter on the depth-chart only

Steelers coach Bill Cowher officially named Antwaan Randle El as a starter at wide receiver Monday, mostly because the Steelers have to start somewhere in their attempt to replace Plaxico Burress. But Cowher maintained that he's committing to nothing at the position beyond the anticipation of a spirited battle between Randle El and free-agent acquisition Cedrick Wilson.

"I'm sure (Randle) El will be out there with the first group (initially)," Cowher said. "He just knows the offense better. Him and Cedrick will be out there competing."

Randle El started five games in place of Burress (hamstring) in 2004 and seven overall.

"(Randle El) high-points the ball probably better than anybody we had on the team last year," Cowher said. "He can go up and get a football at its highest point. I don't look at size so much as a person's ability to catch a ball at its highest point, that's the size you play at."

heres the rest..
