Pat Freiermuth Wants To Be A Steeler For Life

Tight end Pat Freiermuth says he wants to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the rest of his career.

Next season will go a long way in determining whether or not the 2021 second-round pick gets his way. 2024 is a contract year for Pat Freiermuth (25), who struggled with injuries in 2023.

He had 32 receptions for 308 yards and two touchdowns in nine starts last season. Those numbers should rise significantly thanks to the arrival of QB Russell Wilson.

“I want to be in Pittsburgh for the rest of my career,” Pat Freiermuth said

“Hopefully, it shakes out that way. I want to continue to play for Pittsburgh because it reminds me of where I’m from and how I was raised. Growing up and going through the hard times and good times together. I feel like the Pittsburgh media and fanbase and everyone kind of does that together. I feel very at peace and very comfortable in Pittsburgh.”

The Steelers have let go of Kenny Pickett and replaced him with Wilson and Justin Fields. Wilson is the projected QB1, and Freiermuth predicts success for the veteran.

“I was just down there in San Diego with him working out and throwing routes,” Freiermuth said of Wilson. 

“He’s been great at talking to guys and starting to build that connection. He’s a great guy. You can tell the drive and determination that he has to win and come to Pittsburgh and win some playoff games for us. I think he is going to fit our culture and locker room very well.”
