The Steelers have signed veteran punter Brian Moorman, Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest reported on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old Moorman was one of the best punters left in free agency. He will push Drew Butler for the Steelers’ punting job. According to multiple reports, Moorman visited Pittsburgh on Monday.

Moorman had stints with the Cowboys and Bills — his long-time club — in 2012. The Cowboys picked up Moorman when Buffalo released him after a slow start. A two-time Pro Bowler and a member of the NFL’s All-Decade team of the 2000s, Moorman’s form improved in Dallas, where he posted a 38.9-yard net average in 12 games compared to just 32.7 yards net in three games for the Bills.

Drew Butler, the son of former NFL kicker Kevin Butler, recorded a 37.8-yard net average in 2012.

According to Labriola, the Steelers also waived wide receiver Bert Reed on Tuesday.

  1. Why did bills let him go. They eased hm when they were on the 30 yard line. When chan coached they didn’t no when to use him. 😞😒😖

  2. Still miss Sepulveda..Flippin field position was a big problem for us.Hope this Guy has a big leg

  3. Exactly what they need since the Steelers will be doing LOTS of punting this year.

  4. …and punter. Ok, well add that to the list of ways the Ravens will dominate the Steelers. Along with offense, defense, coaching and of course fan attractiveness. 🙂

  5. Ill never forget when he got destroyed by Sean Taylor at the Pro Bowl haha. If there’s on thing I will admit the Steelers are always bad at, it’s punting.

  6. The last line wasn’t necessary. We can tell from the grammar and punctuation that you hold a high cabinet post in the Steeler Nation.

    Probably, but not for obstruction of justice in a murder case.

  8. so if he is a steeler and commits a crime or is accused of one its ok. but if he is a raven its lock him up and throw away the key? got it…thanks for clearing it up. you do realize how crazy that sounds. and the outcome of the ray case was that it wasnt murder. one day maybe you will get your facts straight

  9. Steelers can’t sign a water boy without Moe Larry and Curly making a comment. Damn shame

  10. it goes both ways blackandgold. ravens jump on steeler threads and steelers jump on ravens threads. both sides are guilty

  11. I agree 100% Anybody that thinks the Steelers or the Ravens are just gona fall into oblivion is REDICULOUS. Those 2 teams are basically mirror images of each other. THATS why its the best rivalry in much as I hate um I respect um.

  12. It’s may 3 and this is all the Steelers have done? How lame. At least they could go down and clean up the basement where they’ll be living this season.

  13. it goes both ways blackandgold. ravens jump on steeler threads and steelers jump on ravens threads. both sides are guilty
