Punter Zoltan Mesko signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers two days after being waived by New England during final roster cuts.
Mesko was a fifth-round pick in 2010 and has averaged 44.2 yards per punt through his first three NFL seasons, but lost a training camp competition with Ryan Allen.
In Pittsburgh, he replaces Drew Butler, a second-year punter who was released to create room for Mesko.
