2012 Steelers Offseason: Leonard Pope Visits Pittsburgh

The line of players visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason is not limited to just draft prospects. A tweet by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that free agent tight end Leonard Pope is visiting the team on Tuesday.

Pope has been in the NFL for six years since being drafted in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in 2006. He's played the last three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Last season he caught 24 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown. His career stats include 973 yards and nine touchdowns on 102 receptions.

Pope measures in at 6-foot-8 and 264 pounds. The Steelers could be looking at Pope to provide a red zone target for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
