New Steelers TE Ladarius Green To Wear No. 80

It’s now officially official as the Pittsburgh Steelers have announced the signing of free agent tight end Ladarius Green to a four-year contract that reportedly totals out at $20 million. The team also announced that Green will wear No. 80.

According to the Steelers media guide, 16 players have previously worn No. 80 dating back to 1951. Wide receiver Plaxico Burress last wore the number for the Steelers during the 2012 and 2013 seasons after previously wearing it during his first stint with the team from 2000-2004.

The late Jack Butler, who was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012, also wore No. 80 from 1951-1959.

During his first four years in the league with the San Diego Chargers, Green wore No. 89 and in Pittsburgh, that number is currently being worn by veteran tight end Matt Spaeth.
