    They are signing SS and Sepulveda is fine. They have more important **** to worry about.

    Check out the Steeler roster and there actually is a K on there whose name I never heard or read before.

    They put a ton of guys on roster this time of year but Suisham is a priority right now believe me.

    Suisham is pretty solid so far he only missed 1 of 15 fg's last year, he can punt if needed and has a good powerful leg for touch backs. touch backs will be even easier now that the kick off spot is moved from the 30yd to the 35yd line.

    The Steelers have added a 19th undrafted rookie free agent, and his name is Aaron Bates. Bates (6-0, 198) is a punter from Michigan State, and he played in every one of the Spartans' 52 games during his career, all as the punter and holder.

    Bates left Michigan State ranked second in school history with 260 punts and seventh in punting average at 42.0.

    I thought Suisham did alright last year. Im not going to complain. Would I like better? Sure. Can we field a team that has he best player at every position? No. I just want an efficient kicker and hopefully we can get a more efficeint red zone offense where we use a kicker far less

    It sure sounds like Sepulveda won't be coming back.

    He's the Steelers version of Ryan Doumit.

    Competition is good.... I like Sepulveda, but as it has been pointed out, he sure gets hurt quit a bit.
