According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport, Detroit Lions special teams star will be leaving the Motor City and signing a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Killebrew, the 6’2″..222 lb. joined Detroit in 2016 as a fourth-round draft pick out of Southern Utah, becoming the highest draft pick in the school’s history.
He appeared in all 16 games as a rookie. His first career interception came against New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.null
In 2020, Killebrew missed a game against the Atlanta Falcons for the birth of his first child.
“I wasn’t able to make the game, because my wife was actually in labor, and we welcomed our first child, Stormy J. Killebrew, into this world,” Killebrew told WJR.
“I was trying to figure out any way that we could align it, so that maybe I could make it down there and come back or we can have the baby. When it came down to it, I said, ‘I’m going to be here for my baby — and that’s what we did.'”
