The Pittsburgh Steelers boast two of the best tight ends in the NFL. It all starts out with Heath Miller. Heath is one of the elite tight ends in the NFL alongside Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, and the great Tony Gonzalez. He can catch almost everyone pass that is thrown to him where it is behind him or over his head. He has some of the best hands in the NFL. He also almost rarely fumbles. In all of the Steelers games that I have watched since 2006, I have only scene him fumble twice! If Ben needs someone in a huge situation, he almost always goes to Heath Miller because he knows he can make huge plays and win games for the Steelers. Hopefully he is ready for the start of the regular season this year and that he is back to 100 percent so that he can contribute a lot to the Steelers! The Steelers are truly not the same without Heath on the field.The next tight end on the Pittsburgh depth chart is Matt Spaeth. The Steelers signed him in the offseason to sort of have him fill in for Miller in case he is not ready to go when the season begins. He will still get a lot of playing time though. Spaeth is not known for his catching. He is known for being a blocking tight end.  If the Steelers though need for him to make big plays, I don't know how that is going to work out. He is nothing like Heath Miller and can not make the big plays like he can down the stretch. I guarantee though he will score a few touchdowns for the Steelers this year.  Spaeth played with the Steelers a few years ago when they won the Super Bowl in 2009. They let him go to Chicago for a few years but now he is back with the Steelers to help win another championship. I haven't seen him play in a long time but I look forward to watching him play this year and really helping out this franchise.
