APCould the Steelers be making a change at punter?
According to Mike Garofolo of Fox Sports, the Steelerswill be adding ex-Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko on Monday.
The Patriots waived Mesko, their punter for the previous three seasons, on Saturday, keeping rookieRyan Allen instead.
A left-footed punter, the 27-year-old Mesko posted gross and net averages of 43.1 and 37.9 yards, respectively, in 2012. For his career, Mesko has recorded a 44.2-yard gross average and a 39.5-yard net average, with 101-of-175 punts going unreturned by the opposition.
Mesko’s signing could well mean the Steelers will be replacing Drew Butler, who handled the punting duties in 2012 and beat out veteran Brian Moorman this summer. Butler posted a gross average of 43.8 yards and a net average of 37.8 yards a season ago.
Whatever became of the punter we spent the draft pick on?
I think Sepulveda retired. I doubt this is noteworthy... i.e. I don't think we notice much difference between this guy and Butler. It sucks for Butler though, battling with the team all camp, winning the job, only to get shown the door.
Super Bowl here we come!!

I didn't think Drew Butler was all that good, I believe Mesko will be a definite upgrade.
