Expectations of ARE as 3rd WR

This will be my first post on BTSC, although I've been following the site for the past year or so.

I was just looking at the Steelers roster last night and I checked out Randle El's career stats. As a Steeler he never caught more than 47 passes nor topped over 650 yards recieving. Though he was a phenominal returner so his recieving stats aren't as important because he was still very productive for us. He's older now, and even though he returned punts for the Redskins he's never quite captured what he produced in the black and gold.

So what are the expectations for ARE this year?

I love him as a player and he is one of the most experienced recievers we have but we have the young recievers Brown and Sanders who are more than capable of return duties and maybe late in the year(or sooner depending on how high you are on them) of them producing as a viable recieving threat. I would rank Sanders as the one who would get he most reps at reciever late in the year. I do realize, however, that in most circumstances you wouldn't want a second year reciever(Wallace) and then a rookie reciever as your main starters behind Ward so I understand ARE as a veteran figure. Just some thoughts.
