Ex-Colt Eric Ebron is now a Pittsburgh Steeler. He has signed a two-year $12 million deal with the team.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Friday.
Ebron was drafted by the Lions in 2014 and played four seasons in Detroit. He then signed with the Colts and spent two years in Indianapolis.
Last year Ebron played in 11 games and started in two. He hauled in 31 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns. These numbers were a big drop off from his 2018 campaign, in which he had 66 receptions, 750 yards and a whopping 13 touchdowns at the tight end position.
If he can stay healthy and return to his 2018 form, this is a great and relatively cheap pickup for the Steelers.
