Shortly after announcing that they've signed first-round pick Najee Harris, the Steelers revealed that they've signed second-round pick Pat Freiermuth to his rookie contract, as well.

According to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic, Freiermuth's salary as the 55th overall pick is slotted at four years for $6 million with a $1.74 million signing bonus.

Freiermuth holds the record for career touchdowns for a Penn State tight end with 16. Along with his 16 touchdowns, he had 92 career receptions for 1,185 yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Freiermuth was the highest-graded power five tight end in the red zone last season with a grading of (86.8). Freiermuth also didn't drop a single pass in the red zone in three seasons at Penn State, which means he had 19 receptions for 199 yards and 13 touchdowns without a single drop in the red zone during his tenure in State College.

Third-round pick Kendrick Green is the only Steelers' rookie left that hasn't signed his rookie contract, which should be completed in the near future.
