The Steelers similarly added Brian Flores, who is now the defensive coordinator for the Vikings, in 2022 as their senior defensive assistant & linebackers coach. Vrabel could follow suit after serving as the Texans linebackers coach from 2014-16 and defensive coordinator in 2017 before joining Tennessee.

Vrabel also already has a good rapport with Pittsburgh’s new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Smith was Vrabel’s OC with the Titans from 2019-20 and the two could now pick up right where they left off in the Steel City.

Frazier wrapped the 6-foot-1, 199-pound receiver in a bear hug and, more or less, lugged him ahead for the first down to temporarily stop the clock.
