From the story about Bruener on houstontexans.com:

Quote:
Bruener, considered one of the best blocking tight ends in the league, also left his mark in the passing game with 137 catches for 1,197 yards and 16 touchdowns during his time in the Steel City. That equated to at least 12 receptions in eight of his nine professional seasons with a career-high in receptions (26) and receiving yards (238) during his rookie campaign in 1995.
Quote:
It was no surprise when he set a record for catches by a tight end with 90 after transitioning into collegiate football at nearby University of Washington. He and his teammates went on to stake claim to the national title in 1991 and soon after, he was an active cog in post-season action with the Steelers.
Sounds like he caught just fine in college and as a rookie and the Steelers just didn't use him much in that role except in the red-zone.
