The news comes after Steelers' tight end Vance McDonald was spotted with his arm in a sling on Tuesday, as Schefter points out, opening up a need at tight end for Pittsburgh.
Drafted by the Seahawks in 2016, Vannett has played his entire career in Seattle. He's caught 48 passes for 463 yards and four touchdowns in his career, coming off the most productive season of his career in which he caught 29 for 269 yards and three touchdowns.
This season, Vannett has just four catches for 38 yards through three games.
