Default Steelers Sign 49ers punter to offer sheet

Steelers Sign Andy Lee To Offer Sheet

PITTSBURGH ? The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed restricted free agent punter Andy Lee to an offer sheet, the team announced today.

The San Francisco 49ers have seven days to match the offer sheet by the Steelers. If the 49ers do not match the offer, Pittsburgh has to give its sixth-round pick in this year's NFL Draft to San Francisco in return.

Lee was originally drafted by the 49ers in the sixth round (188th overall) of the 2004 Draft out of Pitt. He averaged a career-high 44.8 yards per punt in 2006, ranking sixth in the NFC and seventh in the NFL. Lee had 81 punts for 3,625 yards this past season.

At Pitt, Lee became the only player in Big East Conference history to be named league Special Teams Player of the Year twice and ranks first in school history in career punts (244) and second in yardage (10,353).




Hopefully this will help out our special teams. a definite upgrade over gardoki.

Yeah if we are going to give up our 6th round pick why not draft a punter in the sixth round, some new blood that can replace Gardocki

I guess the Steelers really don't like Barr.

Are we going to sign anyone that will make an impact? or wait for the draft? Gardocki has always done well for us. I don't really understand what we are doing!! But I will hang in and see where we are going!!

im going to have to quote faneca and ask wtf are we doing? why waste a 6th round pick on a punter like this? either draft a guy or use barr. i thought barr did very well last preseason.

I could be wrong, but didn't the STEELERS already sign Gardocki for a mil this year?

Well they didn't sign Gardocki this year but he is under contract for a little over $1 million

Andy Lee is a very similar punter to Gardocki although I think there would have been better options to explore

I will say this...Lee's net was close to Gardocki but the 49ers had the worst kick coverage in the league. He averaged nearly 45 yards a punt which was up from his 41.6 from the previous 2 years

I don't really think this was a good choice. No matter how much Gardocki sucked last season I'd rather have him.
