Steelers Won’t Bring Back Sepulveda In 2012

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Punter Daniel Sepulveda will not be in a Steelers uniform for the 2012 season, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The team has decided to not bring him back. Jeremy Kapinos is now the only punter on the Steelers roster.

Pittsburgh’s decision most likely stems from multiple knee injuries to Sepulveda since being drafted in the fourth round in 2007. He tore his ACL in 2008 and missed the entire season. In 2010, he missed another 12 games because of a torn ACL.

Sepulveda was placed on injured reserve last season with an injured meniscus.

Other Steelers news:

  • Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson, who was badly burned in a fire Jan. 6, visited the team Wednesday and is expected to resume his duties this summer.
  • Mississippi offensive tackle Bobby Massie met with the Steelers Wednesday at their Southside practice facility.

Steelers Tell P Daniel Sepulveda He Won’t Be Back in 2012

Entering 2012 the Steelers won’t have to worry about punter Daniel Sepulveda being healthy. He won’t be with the team anymore to worry about.

Wednesday Sepulveda told the Post-Gazette he’s been told that the Steelers have told him he won’t be back with the team in 2012, this after playing parts of four seasons and missing a fifth.

Bottom line, the Steelers learned the risk the hard way of moving up and picking up a punter in the fourth round. The 28-year-old has been on injured reserve three times the past four seasons and has undergone five knee surgeries.

Jeremy Kapinos replaced him the past two years, and he will get a long look in camp.
