    Steelers Facing Difficult Roster Decision at TE

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have concluded Organized Team Activities and departed for a midsummer break. Training camp waits on the other side of roughly six weeks off and later will come roster cuts as the team trims down to a final group of 53 men. Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette said during an appearance on 93.7 The Fan's The Starkey Show that he believes tight end will be the most difficult of them all to cut down from five guys to three. "Tight end is so hard for me to predict right now," Fittipaldo said.

    Michigan State Spartans in the NFL: TE Connor Heyward

    The 2022 NFL Draft included a Michigan State Spartan legend in Kenneth Walker III, but one former Spartan who rather flew under the radar in that draft class was tight end Connor Heyward. Heyward was one of those Spartans that seemed to be with Michigan State for a lifetime. The four-year letterwinner spent the first four seasons of his collegiate career as a running back before transitioning to tight end for his final season. Heyward was drafted by the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he joined his brother, defensive lineman Cameron Heyward, a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time Associated Press All-Pro honoree who won the 2023 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
