Titans Sign Ex-Steelers Tight End



Pittsburgh Steelers Free Agent Target Tre'Davious White

The Tennessee Titans are signing former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Nick Vannett, the team announced on Monday. This is the eighth stop in his NFL career, having spent last year with the Houston Texans and Los Angeles Chargers. Now, Vannett will have another chance to make an NFL roster. 

The Steelers had acquired Vannett from the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round 2020 NFL Draft choice in a trade midway through the 2019 season, but he did not have much of an impact. He caught 13 passes for 128 yards over 13 games in Pittsburgh.

The Seahawks turned around and traded that pick to Washington for cornerback Quinton Dunbar, who started six games for Seattle in 2020 before suffering a knee injury. Washington used it to draft former McKeesport and Michigan linebacker Khaleke Hudson.

Vannett was originally drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ohio State by Seattle. He has 91 career catches for 877 yards and six touchdowns over five seasons.

During his career, Vannett has played for the Seahawks, Steelers, Broncos, Saints, Giants, Texans, Chargers, and now, the Titans. Adding onto the fact that he was a National Champion while at Ohio State, and that is no football career to scoff from the veteran tight end.
