Matt Canada Talks Tight End Room, Praises Zach Gentry’s Progression

Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada talked to Jim Miller, Pat Kirwan and Paul Alexander on Movin’ The Chains on SiriusXM NFL Radio Friday night and discussed the team’s current tight end room, specifically Zach Gentry and Connor Heyward.

“Big, strong, tight end, guy who works hard on his ball skills and working hard to be a combat catcher. The bottom line is we know what Gentry is,” Canada said. “He’s a big tight end that’s got a block and help us control the edge in some of those match up against some of those freak defensive ends that we all play.
