Fresh start: Steelers rookies understand high expectations
Steelers rookie Freiermuth took over former tight end Vance McDonald's locker ... right next to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Green wondered if the Steelers might take it out of circulation for a year or two in deference to one of the best offensive linemen of his generation. The Steelers have been looking for a tight end who excels at both blocking and receiving since Heath Miller's retirement after the 2015 season. Pittsburgh's four rookie draft picks — Green, Freiermuth, Harris and tackle Dan Moore Jr. — are all having dinner with Roethlisberger on Saturday night.wftv.com
