Steelers, Sepulveda agree to deal

Daniel Sepulveda will get a chance to win back his punting job.

The Steelers agreed on a contract with Sepulveda, pending a physical. If Sepulveda checks out medically, it will give the Steelers three punters in training camp unless they release one of the other two.

Sepulveda averaged 45.5 yards per punt last season before tearing the ACL in his right knee while making a tackle in an early December game at Baltimore.

Sepulveda, a fourth-round draft pick in 2007, missed the entire 2008 season with the same injury.

Jeremy Kapinos, who replaced Sepulveda last season, and undrafted free agent Aaron Bates are the other punters in camp.

Anyone hear Tampa gave their punter a $20M contract over either 5 or 6 years. It was a ridonculous amount and he's not even any good.

I thought Sepulveda was finished in Pittsburgh? :P

Here's hoping he can pass the physical and stay healthy!

Great news! He probably should wear a heavy stablizing brace on his right (plant) knee for the rest of his career, though.

I love it. Another season of armchair GMs bitching about Sepulveda being a 4th Round pick.

It's better than all of them sitting there saying "I told you so". :D
