DON DEAL:The Steelers have officially signed tight end MyCole Pruitt….

Pittsburgh is signing tight end MyCole Pruitt, per Jeremy Fowler. Pruitt played under Arthur Smith in both Tennessee and Atlanta with the Titans and Falcons
With Pruitt primarily serving as a blocking tight end, amassing just 71 receptions over his ten seasons, including 25 catches for 260 yards and five touchdowns during his stint with the Falcons from 2022-23, the Steelers’ signing prompts speculation about Pat Freiermuth’s role. It’s possible the Steelers may opt to utilize Freiermuth more frequently as a slot receiver and as a pure receiving tight end, shifting away from emphasizing his run-blocking duties.
This also raises the question what happens with Connor Heyward? I can’t imagine the Steelers carrying four tight ends on the roster. That said, with a likely increase in two tight end sets, and a potential switch in roles for Freiermuth, maybe they could carry all four.
