ESPN Steelers blogger Scott Brown expects the team and Heath Miller to work out a contract extension "sooner rather than later."

Miller is entering the final year of his deal and is set to count $9.5 million against the 2014 salary cap. Miller returned better than expected after wrecking his knee in 2012 and caught 58 passes for 593 yards and one score this past season. The 31-year-old is still one of the better all-around tight ends in the league.

Heath Miller caught three passes for 17 yards in Week 16 versus the Packers.

Miller finished a distant second on the team with his four targets, seeing nine fewer passes than Antonio Brown. Miller obviously didn't do much with his grabs, mainly catching the ball and getting tackled. He's just a TE2. The Steelers wrap up the 2013 season by hosting the Browns in Week 17.

Heath Miller caught four passes for 35 yards in Sunday night's Week 15 win over the Bengals.

Miller caught all four of his targets, but was held out of the end zone for the eighth straight game. He has just one touchdown this season and will be just a TE2 option in next week's matchup with the Packers.

Heath Miller caught three passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Heath Miller caught eight passes for 86 yards in Thursday night's Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Miller was targeted nine times and led the Steelers in both receptions and yards. He was finding room behind the linebackers and in front of the safeties all night. Miller was also stopped inside the one-yard line two separate times, or he could have had a monster game. His eight grabs matched a season-high, while the yards are a new best. Miller will be on the TE1 radar in Week 14 against Miami.

Heath Miller had five catches for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

Miller was targeted six times and continues to be used as Ben Roethlisberger's primary safety valve. He's still not close to being the player he was before his knee injury, and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7. Miller will be just a TE2 option in Week 13 against the Ravens.

Heath Miller caught eight passes for 67 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 11 win over the Lions.

With Emmanuel Sanders knocked out early with a foot injury, Miller was Ben Roethlisberger's primary safety valve. He could have had a bigger day, but dropped a one-yard touchdown in the end zone. The eight catches were nice for a player who hadn't corralled more than four in any of his past four games, but Miller still looked like Jake Ballard in the open field. He's not the same player he was before his knee injury, and is a borderline TE1 as a result.

Heath Miller caught four passes for 43 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss at New England.

Ben Roethlisberger attempted 48 passes, but Miller was targeted on just five of them. He's just a reliable safety valve. In six games played this year, Miller is averaging 4.0 catches for 44.6 yards with one touchdown. Owners expecting more than that are going to be disappointed.
