Most assumed when the Pittsburgh Steelers released Robert Golden along with William Gay and Mike Mitchell filling his role wouldn’t be difficult. After all, Golden was an emergency safety, but was also a special teams captain for many years with the black-and-gold.
The Steelers have brought in several players to fill this role, but everyone left without a contract. That was until former New York Giants special teams ace Nat Berhe visited. After spending a day at the team’s facility, Berhe announced on his verified Twitter account he is now a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
After the signings of Jon Bostic and Morgan Burnett, bringing in a special teams player doesn’t seems like such a big deal, but it is clear the team wasn’t comfortable going into the 2018 regular season with their current crop of special teams players, mainly looking for some experience at the position.
In his time in the NFL, Behre, who is also a safety, has tallied 22 total tackles, 14 of them coming on special teams.
Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on this story, financial details, and others, surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers offseason moves.
UPDATE: Berhe posted this highlight reel on his Twitter page.
