Tight End Nick Vanett is a Pittsburgh Steeler. The Steelers traded away a 2020 5th round pick (per Tom Pelissero) to obtain Vannett from the Seattle Seahawks.
With Will Dissly’s emergence as Russell Wilson’s new favorite red zone target, Seattle became comfortable moving on from Vannett.
Pittsburgh needed to go shopping for a new tight end since Vance McDonald is dinged up with a sprained shoulder.
Vannett is more of a receiver than blocker so he could see fantasy value in the Steelers offense.
