New TE Eric Ebron Gives Steelers A Much-Needed Red Zone Threat

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed unrestricted free agent tight end Eric Ebron to a two-year, $12 million contract recently and his arrival should fortify that position for at least the 2020 season. Ebron’s arrival should also help improve the Steelers red zone offense as well.

While Ebron is much more than just a red zone threat in the passing game, 21 of his 27 career touchdown receptions have come from within the opponents 20-yard-line. In fact, in the last two seasons, Ebron has produced 12 red zone touchdown receptions and only wide receivers Davante Adams and Michael Thomas have had more.
