Steelers Sign Punter Brad Wing To One Year Deal

The Steelers have signed P Brad Wing to a one year extension.

Wing was an exclusive rights free agent. As such, the signing carries no risk for the team (no guaranteed money). Wing had an up and down season last year. While many of his stats are underwhelming, and there was that one play that we shall not speak of, he did have some bright moments. His booming 74 yard punt against the Bengals was the 3rd longest among NFL punters this year.

The team also signed some camp competition for the Aussie born punter. Former Ravens punter Richie Leone has been signed to a futures contract after having a workout with the Steelers earlier in the week. Leone, a former Ray Guy award winner, was signed by Baltimore last spring as an undrafted free agent, and was with the Ravens last summer in training camp.
