Ladarius Green gets a four-year, $20 million deal with the Steelers. Truly a year-to-year deal. He gets $6M in 2016, $11M in first 1 years.

Green, 25, emerged in 13 games (11 starts) last season for the San Diego Chargers. He caught 37 passes for 429 yards and four touchdowns.

The 33-year-old Miller recently announced his retirement after 11 seasons as the Steelers' starting tight end.

Aware that Green was likely to leave as a free agent, the Chargers inked longtime tight end Antonio Gates to a two-year, $12 million deal on Wednesday.
