5 free agent tight ends Steelers must sign to better the roster
By Andrew Falce
This may be the most unknown name of the group, but Sean Culkin would make a lot of sense for the Steelers at this point. He doesn’t have the veteran stats that either Green or Stocker have at this point, but he makes up for it with decent athleticism and the flexibility to play as a fullback as well as just a traditional tight end.
Culkin actually had some hype around him this past offseason, as he was noteworthy for being one of the first NFL players to have his salary converted to Bitcoin. That opportunity won’t come with the Chiefs anymore, but it could come from the Steelers. He is a utility player that can throw a great block. One just has to remember the block he delivered to the team last year when he was on the Ravens active roster.
Culkin doesn’t have as much anchoring power as the two aforementioned veterans, but he can do the dirty work required of a number three tight end. He can play on special teams, throw a block, and has the versatility to play fullback if Derek Watt gets injured. Far from a notable name, Culkin is one that makes a lot of sense given the multiple different hats he can wear.
