Heath Miller Ready To Perform Under The Radar Once Again

Amidst all the unsettling news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers this offeason, one constant looks to be more steady and reliable than ever: tight end Heath Miller. The Virginia product set career highs in receptions (76) and receiving yards (789) a year ago, and though Steeler Nation didn’t hear his name called too often this preseason, it’s a safe bet that Miller will again be one of the Steelers’ quarterbacks favorite targets. For now, that’s Dennis Dixon, and when Ben Roethlisberger returns, I’d imagine that his production will spike upward sooner rather than later.

Regardless of his statistical output, Miller will go about his business like the consummate professional that he is. In fact, his quiet demeanor and steady production are traits that his teammates admire in the hulking tight end:

“You have a better chance of the sun dying out before seeing Heath do an end zone dance,” Steelers left tackle Max Starks said.

Miller, of course, is flattered by the accolades but isn't letting it get to his head:

“These guys may be a little biased,” Miller recently said of his teammates, “but I don’t really play to be labeled as the best tight end in the league. I have areas that I can improve on, and I’m trying to be the best end I can be.”
