Steelers Punters Continue To Battle Through Final Preseason Game
The only battle for a starting spot is punter, where incumbent Drew Butler has displayed a stronger leg in training camp and mostly outperformed veteran Brian Moorman in preseason games.
Moorman, a three-time Pro Bowler and punter on the NFL's all-decade team for 2000, was brought in to challenge for the position after Butler averaged 43.8 yards and had a punt blocked as a rookie.
Butler had a better gross average in three preseason games (47.3), but Moorman had a better net average (37.9). But Butler has displayed a much stronger leg after putting on 14 pounds in the offseason and bulking up to 219 pounds.
"It's made a difference," Butler said of the added weight. "I can really tell a difference this year. My leg is much stronger."
