PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth is forging his own identity in his second season. Freiermuth has become a favorite target of rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett. Freiermuth’s 50 receptions rank second on the team and the Penn State star has been embraced by the fan base. Fans yell “Muuuth” ever time he makes a catch.

Freiermuth says he understands the comparison to Miller, but is focused on simply trying to get better.
