    Could the Steelers be making a change at punter?
    According to Mike Garofolo of Fox Sports, the Steelers[URL="https://twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status/374626235709534208"]will be adding[/URL] ex-Patriots punter [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5923/zoltan-mesko"]Zoltan Mesko[/URL] on Monday.
    The Patriots waived Mesko, their punter for the previous three seasons, on Saturday, keeping rookie[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8999/ryan-allen"]Ryan Allen[/URL] 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 [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7950/drew-butler"]Drew Butler[/URL], who handled the punting duties in 2012 and beat out veteran [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/2295/brian-moorman"]Brian Moorman[/URL] this summer. Butler posted a gross average of 43.8 yards and a net average of 37.8 yards a season ago.

    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.
