Sealed: Steelers finally secured the eagerly awaited Icon to anchor their roster.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are undergoing a series of significant changes on the offensive side this offseason, beginning at quarterback. Now they’ve added another new face—a familiar one for Kansas City Chiefs fans—to the mix of competitors at tight end with the signing of Izaiah Gathings.

The arrival of Justin Fields and Russell Wilson to the Steelers this offseason has led to a quarterback change.
Along with Troy Fautanu, a first-round tackle, the team also used three picks up front along the offensive line to select wideout Roman Wilson.

Jets Sign TE Izaiah Gathings

A former wide receiver at MTSU, Gathings turned into a tight end at the pro level and profiles as a solid pass catcher who had 559 yards and 60 catches in his final season with the Blue Raiders.

Gathings was a former rookie free agent who signed with the Chiefs after the 2023 NFL Draft, after a brief but unsuccessful tenure with the New York Jets. He spent two spells with the Chiefs. Despite not making the squad, Gathings re-signed with Kansas City in late December, joining wide receiver Anthony Miller on the practice squad.

For the Chiefs, Gathings was another bet on a product from Middle Tennessee State, a smaller program that has been good to Kansas City in the past. Cornerback Charvarius Ward played his college ball there, as did linebacker Darius Harris.
