- They did so by coming to terms with former Chicago Bears punter Adam Podlesh.
Yet, as Dale Lolley indicates, he did pin opponents inside the 20 yard line 27 times, which is something that Mat McBriar and Zoltan Mesko together only accomplished 16 times last year.
Podlesh’s best year in the NFL came in 2011, when he sent the Chicago Bears single season record for punting. Ironically, Podlesh was drafted 11 spots ahead of Daniel Sepulveda, whom the Steelers picked in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Nor is this the only (comic book like?) cross over – Drew Butler will replace Podlesh in Chicago.
- In addition to Podlesh, the Steelers also have Brad Wing under contract.
When asked about Wing’s character issues, Kevin Colbert told Jim Wexell, “Again, players mature as the years go on.”
