Steelers' Miller among most efficient TEs
By James Walker
As the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to morph into a pass-first offense, one of the biggest beneficiaries this season has been starting tight end Heath Miller.
The five-year veteran has already set new career-highs for receptions (71) and yards (733) in a season. Pittsburgh (8-7) will finish its regular season Sunday against the Miami Dolphins (7-8).
Miller has also been one of the most dependable targets in the league, catching 71 of 91 passes (78 percent) thrown in his direction.
