From Heath to Heath: Pittsburgh Steelers hand torch to Jesse James

“Heaathhh.” For 11 years, that’s the only thing the city of Pittsburgh heard whenever former tight end, Heath Miller, caught the ball. In 2016, little has changed.

Being dubbed “Heath Miller two,” Jesse James has already won over the hearts of fans. With the release of Ladarius Green, it appears he’s won over the heart of the coaches as well.

The torch has been passed. James now owns the tight end position in Pittsburgh whether he’s ready or not. Fortunately, after a full season of starting, James is ready to take the place of Steelers legend, Heath Miller.
