The Steelers, who are in need of veteran tight end depth, have been awarded Michael Palmer on waivers from Seattle.

Palmer (6-5, 252) has appeared in 43 regular-season games, all with Atlanta, catching 21 passes for 123 yards and three TDs.

With Heath Miller and David Johnson sidelined with knee injuries and Matt Spaeth dealing with a foot injury, Palmer could be the Steelers’ most experienced healthy tight end when they host the Giants on Saturday night.,

With Palmer arriving, the Steelers waived rookie tight end John Rabe.

Earlier Thursday, the Steelers announced the signing of first-year tight end Nathan Overbay and waived tackle Mike Farrell.

    Course we’re all jealous 6rings. The steelers are so strapped at TE they had to sign an undrafted street FA, cut by his 3rd team after 2 weeks. If only Colbert hadn’t put himself in cap jail, he may have been able to sign someone better than this guy or a retread like Spaeth. Best in the world at what? They better shut everybody out this yr.
