Per a report of Adam Schefter, it appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers will make their first free agent signing of a player from a different team at the tight end position in an acquisition of LaDarius Green.

Green had just finished his rookie contract after playing all four years of his career with the San Diego Chargers. A fourth round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft from Louisiana Lafayette, Green had his best season in 2015 when he saw more playing time with Antonio Gates suffering from injuries throughout the season.

He totaled 429 yards on 37 receptions from 63 targets and scored four touchdowns last season. Steelers fans may remember when he faced against Pittsburgh earlier in the 2015 regular season, recording five catches from five targets and gaining 50 yards.

As more details come in on this signing, we will update this story.
