MICHAEL PALMER RUMORS

Win Over Texans is a Start, But Issues Remain for the Steelers

The ball bounced and it bounced and it ricocheted off one guy and then another and when it finally came to rest it was in the hands of Pittsburgh Steelers’ reserve tight end Michael Palmer.

Steelers TE Michael Palmer Contract Update

I have an update on the one-year contact signed last week by Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Michael Palmer. According to NFLPA records, Palmer did indeed sign for the veteran minimum, but he didn't receive a signing bonus.

State of the Steelers: Tight End

When Heath Miller was still recovering from ACL surgery early in the 2013 season,it became clear that he was an important part of the offense. It didn’t help that Matt Spaeth was also sidelined with a foot injury. The Steelers tried to keep their head above water with what Coach Tomlin called a “committee-oriented group,” of David Paulson, David Johnson, Michael Palmer, and...
