Steelers’ 2014 Training Camp Battle Report: Tight Ends

Much like we could with the report on the quarterback position, we can pretty much pencil in the top two guys at the tight end spot. Heath Miller will be your starter and Matt Spaeth will be his back-up. The only question regarding Miller is whether or not he can return to the form he displayed prior to his severe knee injury late in the 2012 season. Miller showed flashes at times...

Steelers Camp Preview: Will anyone challenge Heath Miller at TE?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going into camp this year with six tight ends on the roster. Heath Miller has been one of the most underrated players in the NFL his entire career. Matt Spaeth, when healthy, is a solid number two player. Spaeth (87) and Miller (83) will likely be the TE tandem for the Steelers this season Heath and Spaeth being 100 percent healthy is a storyline this...

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. His contract, however, is still a qualifying contract and he will only count $570,000 against the salary cap. So what does this mean? Basically, the Steelers...

Michael Palmer Signing Could Put The Pressure On David Paulson

The Pittsburgh Steelers inked two players to contracts yesterday, the far less interesting of the two being tight end Michael Palmer. Palmer was the blocking complement to Tony Gonzalez with the Atlanta Falcons before being released last offseason, ultimately finding his way to Pittsburgh late in the offseason. With both Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth out to start the year, Palmer...

Steelers Re-signing Of TE Michael Palmer On Friday Shouldn’t Affect The Draft One Bit

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed unrestricted free agent tight end Michael Palmer on Friday and many believe that move now rules out the team drafting a tight end in the 2014 NFL Draft. Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest leads the charge following Palmer's signing as he wrote on Twitter, "Michael Palmer re-signed by @Steelers. 1-year, likely for the veteran minimum. U can...

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...

Today is one of those moments where I’m throwing something out there for you to consider. Despite the fact that...

Tight End Reps Keeping Mike Adams In The Loop

By Matthew Marczi Mike Adams should be thanking Levi Brown for being so fragile as to suffer a season-ending injury during pre-game warm ups. Had that not occurred, perhaps Adams would still be spending his Sundays in sweat clothes as he ‘hones his craft’ in practice. That is hyperbole, of course. Given the carousel of injuries that have happened since then, including the season...
