A former Green Bay Packers tight end has found a new team for training camp after signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. In recent years, the Packers have seen a lot of turnover at the tight end position. The Packers drafted two rookies in the draft after declining to re-sign Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis.

The Packers claimed Lovett off of waivers in July of 2020. He appeared in eight games for the Packers that season before ending the year on the injured reserve for a torn ACL. Lovett was waived the following spring. He spent time with the Dolphins during the 2022 season.
Lovett was catching the interest of other NFL teams before he signed with the Steelers. The New York Jets tried him out near the start of their training camp.
