The Pittsburgh Steelers have gone the free agency route to find a replacement for Heath Miller at tight end.
PFT has confirmed that former San Diego Chargers tight end Ladarius Green has reached a four-year, $20 million deal with the Steelers.
Green will get a $4.5 million signing bonus with Pittsburgh. He will make $1.25 million in base salary in 2016, $5 million in 2017, and $4.5 million in 2018 and 2019.
Green is coming off a career-best season in San Diego with 429 yards and four touchdowns. Green started 13 games for the Chargers in 2015 as Antonio Gates was limited to just four starts due to injuries.
Green has appeared in 47 games for San Diego over the last four seasons with 77 catches for 1,087 yards and seven touchdowns.
