"On behalf of the entire Steelers organization and Steelers Nation around the world, I would like to congratulate and thank Heath of his many contributions to the Steelers," president Art Rooney II said Friday in a statement. "The chants of 'HEEATH' will be missed at Heinz Field and around the entire NFL."
The 30th overall selection of the 2005 NFL Draft, Miller spent his entire career in black and gold and retires as the Steelers' all-time leader in receptions (592), receiving yards (6,569), and receiving touchdowns (45) by a tight end.
Durability was one of Miller's biggest assets, as he missed just eight regular-season games during his career and started all but one of the games he played in. He holds the franchise record for most regular-season games played by a tight end with 168.
In addition to his two Super Bowl wins (XL and XLIII), Miller also earned Pro Bowl honors twice and was named the Steelers' 2012 MVP after career highs with 71 catches for 816 yards and eight touchdowns.
