Report: Steelers adding punter Brian Moorman
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.
