Former Bengals Tight End Reggie Kelly To Visit Pittsburgh On Tuesday

Really, Reggie? The enemy? Not that we have the right to complain. Former Bengals tight end Reggie Kelly will reportedly visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, likely competing for the second and/or third spot behind starter Heath Miller, according Mike Prisuta of WDVE in Pittsburgh. Signing with Cincinnati as an unrestricted free agent in 2003, Kelly played with the Bengals for the past eight seasons, save for missing the entire 2009 season after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon during training camp. Kelly has been noted mostly as a blocking tight end, often helping Carson Palmer out in the passing game by lining up in the backfield as added protection. During his 100-game stint with the Bengals, Kelly posted 125 receptions for 970 yards receiving and three touchdowns, the last coming in 2006.

After the team selected Jermaine Gresham in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Kelly has largely worked in a mentor role while often lining up double tight end formations and added protection in obvious passing down situations. The final notice that Kelly was likely finished in Cincinnati was the team's signing of Bo Scaife last week.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac initially reported that the Steelers are interested in Kelly, wanting to bring him in for a visit.
