Posted Feb 20, 2016

Heath Miller put up numbers that no Steelers' tight end before him did.

1

With the 1st pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Steelers selected Heath Miller out of the University of Virginia.

Miller played 11 seasons with the Steelers, becoming one of the most prolific tight ends in team history.

Miller is the Steelers’ all-time leader in receptions for a tight end with 592. The 592 receptions are also second most in Steelers’ history at any position.

Miller is the owner of two Super Bowl rings as a member of the Super Bowl XL and XLIII teams.

6,569

While the Steelers love to use their tight ends to block, Miller has been an amazing part of the passing game and his 6,569 yards are the most receiving yards ever by a Steelers’ tight end.

4

Only four players in Steelers history have recorded 500 receptions, and Miller is one of them.

71

In 2012 Miller was named the Steelers MVP when he had 71 receptions for 816 yards and eight touchdowns.

12

Miller is one of 12 tight ends in NFL history to record 6,000 or more career receiving yards.

Miller was voted to the Pro Bowl twice in his career (2009 and 2012).

Miller recorded 500 or more receiving yards for nine straight seasons (2007-2015).  He is only the second player in team history to do so, the other being Hines Ward who did it for 12 straight seasons.
