Steelers News Steelers Sign Former Pine-Richland, YSU Tight End Kevin Rader Published 1 week ago on January 9, 2019 By Donnie Druin Courtesy of Youngstown State Athletics 28shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment EmailThe Pittsburgh Steelers have signed former Pine-Richland, Youngstown State and Green Bay Packers tight end Kevin Rader to a reserve/futures contract for the 2019 season. Rader played college football at Youngstown State, where he amassed 44 receptions for 601 yards and four touchdowns. None of his catches are as famous as his amazing catch in the FCS playoffs, where he caught a ball with one hand, pinning it against the back of a defender in the endzone. Catch of the Year!! Youngstown State’s Kevin Rader sends the Penguins to Frisco with an AMAZING snag! #FCSPlayoffs pic.twitter.com/JhH8A2QNsj — FCS Football (@NCAA_FCS) December 18, 2016 While playing against Pitt in 2017, Rader caught six balls for 100 yards at Heinz Field. Rader, a graduate of Pine-Richland High School, makes his way back to his home roots after spending training camp with the Green Bay Packers in 2018 after signing as an undrafted rookie free agent. The Steelers will need depth at their tight end position, as both Jesse James and Xavier Grimble are set to become free agents this offseason. 28shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment Email Related Topics:featuredKevin RaderPittsburgh SteelersReserve/FutureRoster MovesTight End Up Next Steelers Hire Pitt Alum, Sharon Native Teryl Austin Don't Miss Mike Munchak Likely to Stay With Steelers Donnie Druin Continue Reading You may like Art Rooney II Opens up on Bell, Brown, Tomlin and More Buccaneers Hire Former Steeler Randle El Mic Drop: Munchak Leaving for Broncos Speaks to Steelers Mess Mike Munchak Leaving Steelers for Same Position With Broncos Jerry Rice on Antonio Brown: ‘He Wants to Come Here Really Bad’ Is Ben Roethlisberger a Bad Teammate?
