Matt Stewart played for the Falcons and Browns from 2001 to 2006 and was a starting linebacker in both spots. But he never played in a regular-season game in 2007, 2008 or 2009.
Stewart isn’t done in the NFL, however, and he’s trying to make it with the Steelers as a long snapper.
Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com reports that Stewart was signed to take the place of Jared Retkofsky, the long snapper who was released last week. The Steelers’ regular long snapper, Greg Warren, suffered a torn ACL for the second consecutive season in December.
In the last two years Stewart went to training camp with the Cardinals and Cowboys but was released before the season started.
