Steelers To Utilize TE Heath Miller More Under Todd Haley
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." Tight end hasn't been an overly productive position in the Haley's four-plus years directing an offense. Leonard Pope had a pair of 20-plus catch seasons under Haley (2007 with the Arizona Cardinals and 2009 with the Kansas City Chiefs) before the Chiefs' Tony Moeaki had 47 receptions for 556 yards and three touchdowns in 2010. That partly could be due to the level of talent Haley has had to work with, but he now has one of the best in the league in Miller.
