Former Pats P Zoltan Mesko, cut the other day, will be signing with the Steelers today.

Mesko was released by the Patriots because he was entering the final year of his contract [which meant $1.46 million in salary and an extension in the off-season] but also because he ranked 27th in the league in net yards last season and was beaten out by rookie Ryan Allen who is a back to back Ray Guy award winner.

I just wanted to say that although Zoltan is a good punter [not great] he is however a great person who does a lot of charity, you guys will love him.

Hopefully he replaces Guy Whimper as backup OT.

Wow, a 2nd move. RT @SteelersPRBurt: @steelers sign P Zoltan Mesko & waive P Drew Butler - claim CB Antwon Blake & release CB Isaiah Green.

Noticeable emphasis on special teams. Steelers must be very worried about them, which is understandable.

I like the Mesko signing. At least an upgrade on Butler.

That Blake guy is a smurf, but from his Pro Day he appears to be a freaky athlete. 4.3 40, 39 vertical, 10'02 broad jump. Had 12 tackles last year on special teams.

+1...

I see what you did there 43 Cool

I like the signing! He will be an upgrade and also like the signing of a better special teamer for the 5th cb spot. Good job on both signings IMO
