Pittsburgh Steelers Try And Address Punting Issues Signing Adam Podlesh

The Steelers have had issues finding a guy that can stay healthy and can be an effective punter, and Tuesday again tried their luck with the signing of punter Adam Podlesh to a one-year contract. Podlesh (5-11, 200, 8) was originally drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the fourth round (101st overall) of the 2007 […]

Adam Podlesh probably won't lead the Steelers to the Super Bowl

Will the signing of Adam Podlesh prove to be significant for the Steelers this season? As history has shown us, even if Podlesh has a bad 2014 campaign and is replaced by someone named Paul Ernster, it probably won't effect Pittsburgh's Super Bowl chances very much. When it was announced on Tuesday that the Steelers signed punter Adam Podlesh to a one-year contract, the first thing  that came to mind was, "So, is he going to compete with what's his name from last year?" "What's his name," of course, is Mat McBriar, the guy who punted the last nine weeks of the 2013 regular season, and...

Meet Adam Podlesh, the newest Steelers roster member

The Steelers signed P Adam Podlesh Tuesday, a player coming off his worst career season. Not long ago, Podlesh was booming punts, and defeating cancer. The most impressive aspect of Steelers punter Adam Podlesh may not be his punting prowess. Podlesh ran a 4.4 40-yard dash. That shouldn't be surprising, he posted the top 200-meter and 400-meter times in the state of New York his junior year at Pittsford Sutherland High School. He also played running back and linebacker on the school's football team, along with punting. His athletic achievements aside, the most impressive aspect of Podlesh...

Twitter reactions to Steelers signing Adam Podlesh

They're relatively mixed between good ones and bad ones, with the standard humorous ones, and even a Star Wars reference. My gut reaction is Steelers punter Adam Podlesh was brought in to compete with Brad Wing for the team's punting job. My gut, at that point, takes on a very familiar feeling of resignation as this team obviously is not any closer to having what most folks would call a "decent" punter. Maybe I'm wrong though. Mesko/McBriar had 16 punts downed inside 20 last season. Podlesh had 27 with only two touchbacks. #Steelers — Dale Lolley (@dlolleyor) April 15, 2014 That's...

Steelers sign former Bears punter Podlesh

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed former Chicago Bears punter Adam Podlesh to a one-year contract, the team announced on Tuesday. The Bears released Podlesh in March prior to the start of free agency after the seven-year NFL veteran averaged 40.6 yards per punt, with a 37.9-yard net average in 2013. Podlesh, who signed a five-year, $10 million contract with $3.5 million guaranteed with the Bears on July 30, 2011, was scheduled to count $1.825 million against Chicago’s salary cap in 2014 before team decided to cut ties with the punter.

Steelers sign ex-Bears P Adam Podlesh to 1-year contract

Podlesh was a fourth-round selection by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2007, the first punter taken that year. The Steelers traded up to draft the second, Dan Sepulveda. One of the more infamous draft day moves in recent Steelers memory was in 2007, when they dealt a pick to move up in the fourth round, selecting Baylor's Daniel Sepulveda. He was the second-highest rated punter on the board that year. Part of the reason the Steelers felt the need to move up to get him was because the Jaguars selected the top-ranked punter, Maryland's Adam Podlesh, with the 102nd overall pick. Sepulveda is...
