The official launch of the Ladarius Era has been delayed. Via multiple reports, Green has been placed on the Steelers Physically Unable to Perform list, with an ankle injury. He had offseason surgery on that ankle.
With Heath Miller retired, the Steelers need a competent tight end to enhance their offense. They signed Ladarius Green to be that guy, the story pointed out. Of course, Green will miss at least some valuable time trying to find some chemistry in the Steelers offense. We see him as having TE1 potential and rank him eighth at the position.
