Valdes-Scantling finished the 2022 season with 42 catches for 687 yards and two touchdowns. He finished sixth in the league with 16.5 yards per catch. In the AFC Championship Game, Valdes-Scantling caught six passes for 111 yards and a touchdown helping to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.
Entering his second season of a three-year deal signed last spring, Valdes-Scantling will be surrounded by plenty of young talent in the receivers room. The departure of JuJu Smith-Schuster in free agency could lead to a more prominent role for Valdes-Scantling.
