The entire NFL world was rocked Wednesday morning by the news of Franco Harris' passing. Tributes from many people connected to the Pittsburgh Steelers legend have rolled in since then expressing gratitude for Harris in one way or another.

Current Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth posted an emotional message to the Hall of Famer on Wednesday.

Freiermuth said he was thankful for the friendship he cultivated with Harris since arriving in Pittsburgh. The two shared a special connection as both former Penn State players who became Steelers.

Of course, it's hard to forget about the moment Freiermuth officially entered the NFL. Harris was designated as Pittburgh's celebrity announcer for the No. 55 overall section in the 2021 draft, and the Nittany Lions alum had the honor of welcoming another Penn State product into the Steeler family.

Harris will be remembered for his incredible playing career, which included nine Pro Bowl selections and a First Team All-Pro honor in 1977. He was responsible for one of the most famous plays in NFL history after making the "Immaculate Reception" during the 1972 playoffs.
