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 Mention Steelers Now and save $10! 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 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 Advertisement You may like Steelers Sights and Sounds: Home Turf Exclusive with former Steelers QB Landry Jones Steelers Roster Projection after Preseason Week 2 Poll: Who Should Be Steelers Backup Quarterback?
