The Steelers have added a free agent finally who was not one of their own as they have agreed to terms with tight end John Gilmore according to Gerry Dulac. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Gilmore is 31 years of age and has 52 receptions for 524 yards and five touchdowns during his nine-year career with the Bears and Buccaneers, where Gilmore has caught 31 passes for 330 yards and two touchdowns over the last three seasons.
Gilmore will battle for the backup position behind Heath Miller, a spot held last year by Matt Spaeth, who signed with the Bears last week. The Steelers had also brought in veteran tight end Daniel Graham over the weekend, but he has since signed with the Titans. Gilmore will not be able to practice until Thursday per the new labor rules.
