The Pittsburgh Steelers officially released K Garrett Hartley from injured reserve on Tuesday, according to the NFL transactions release. Hartley, 28, had spent five seasons with the Saints.
He was signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2008. Later that year he became the placekicker for the New Orleans Saints, for whom he set an NFL record (now surpassed) for most consecutive successful field goals to start a career, and then became the first kicker in NFL history to convert three field goals of more than 40 yards in the Super Bowl. He played college football at Oklahoma.
