The Pittsburgh Steelers made the acquisition of Ladarius Green official Thursday when the tight end flew to Pittsburgh and passed his physical. Upon signing his new 4-year contract, Green met with the media and posed for a few photos to show he is the latest member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Some odds and ends regarding Green's arrival to Pittsburgh:

  • He will wear No. 80.
  • His nickname growing up was "Peewee", despite growing to be 6-feet 6-inches tall.
  • He was impressed with Steelers Nation when the team traveled to San Diego to play the Chargers in 2015. He is happy to be a part of the tradition.
  • Tabbed as having a concussion issue, Green said it was an issue with his sinuses. Should be good to go for camp.
  • Had surgery on his ankle to repair damage.
  • Green recently took a phone call from Ben Roethlisberger...was surprised the Super Bowl winning quarterback knew his name.
