Heading into the season, the Steelers’ tight ends, including Pat Freiermuth, Darnell Washington, Connor Heyward, and Rodney Williams, are looking to make significant strides after a mixed performance in the 2023 campaign.
Freiermuth, who has been a key target in the passing game for the Steelers, faced challenges in 2023 due to injuries and inconsistent offensive play.
Despite the setbacks, Freiermuth showed flashes of his playmaking abilities, especially in games against Cincinnati and Buffalo.
As the Steelers head into the 2024 season, there is a strong emphasis on increasing the involvement of tight ends in the passing game to boost offensive production.
During the 2023 season, the Steelers’ tight ends were targeted less frequently than several individual tight ends in the league, highlighting the need for a shift in offensive strategy.
With Smith’s history of utilizing multiple tight end packages in his offenses, including standout performances from Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith in Atlanta, there is optimism for the Steelers’ tight end group to excel in the upcoming season.
While the Steelers have traditionally favored 11 personnel formations, Smith’s preference for 12 personnel could lead to a shift in offensive schemes to optimize the talents of Freiermuth, Heyward, and Washington.
As the young tight end group continues to develop and refine their skills, there is anticipation for a breakout year in 2024, with potential for significant growth and impact on the Steelers’ offense.
