The Steelers have agreed to terms with veteran free agent tight John Gilmore.

The 6-foot-5, 257-pound Penn State graduate started 11 games for Tampa Bay last year and caught 13 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown.

Gilmore, 31, played six years for Chicago and the past three with the Buccaneers.

The Steelers lost backup free agent tight end Matt Spaeth to Chicago last week.

Gilmore will compete with David Johnson for the backup spot behind Heath Miller.
