Steelers signed former Bears punter Adam Podlesh to a one year deal

Today the  Pittsburgh Steelers announced they  signed former Chicago Bears punter Adam Podlesh to a one-year contract.  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.  The 30-year-old Podlesh spent his first four years in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL draft.

The Steelers signed a very good punter for a relatively cheap deal.  This should be a great signing down the road.  The Steelers continue to add solid depth at a low cost.
