Ebron played in 11 games last season before going down with an injury. He caught 31 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll provide much-needed TE help for a Steelers’ team which needs it.
He was originally drafted by the Detroit Lions 10th overall in 2014. He spent four years there before inking a deal with the Colts in 2018. For his career, he’s caught 283 passes for 3195 yards and 27 touchdowns. He’ll be a downfield, middle of the field threat this team sorely needs, though there’s fair questions about his blocking and health. Only twice in his career has he played all 16 games.
