06/02/16 - WR Markus Wheaton is entering the final year of his rookie contract and admits his long-term future is on his mind. "I think about it a little bit when I'm at home watching TV or something like that," he said. "Once it's football, it's football. You don't really think about much out here. That's why I like football so much. You come out and no matter what you have going on anywhere else outside of football, you come here and it is just football."
05/25/16 - WR Markus Wheaton is entering the final year of his rookie contract and should have plenty of opportunities to impress due to the absence of Martavis Bryant, who is serving a year-long drug suspension.

"I hope so," Wheaton said. "I'm not making the calls, but I'm definitely excited about the opportunity. I wish Martavis was here, but we have a lot of young guys who are willing and able."
