The departure of ringleader/punter Josh Miller appeared to be the first step in cleaning up "Kicker's Corner" however it appears as if the Steelers will bring long-snapper Mike Schneck back into the fold.
The Steelers of course are giving third-year placekicker Jeff Reed a chance to recover from last season's slump. But the Steelers gave the appearance that Scnneck was set to join his good-time buddy Miller on the sidelines, but it only proved to be an illusion.
The Tribune-Review, which is the last word on all news related to kickers in the Tri-State Area, reports that Schneck, a sixth-year vet, will sign a two-year, $1.295 million contract that includes a $100,000 signing bonus.
The Steelers won't release the news until they can find room under the salary cap. Reportedly, they are only $40,000 under the cap.
Deal reached with long-snapper
