Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller is expected to play a key role as a receiver in new offensive coordinator Todd Haley's system, Ed Bouchette reports in Thursday's edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"Haley is excited about what Heath Miller is capable of," head coach Mike Tomlin said. "He's been very clear about that, his excitement to work with Miller. I would imagine that the tight end is going to be a part of our plan."
"I definitely see opportunities for that to happen," said Miller. "That's not to say there weren't opportunities in the last offense. We (the tight ends) are going to be involved a lot."
I'll believe it when I see it quite honestly but at least there's hope that we might actually see Heath more involved in the red zone a long with the general offensive gameplan.
