Steelers add a pair of veterans off waivers

The Sports NetworkSeptember 2, 2013 

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed a pair of veterans on Monday, adding punter Zoltan Mesko and cornerback Antwon Blake.

Mesko spent the first three years of his career with New England, which made him a fifth round draft pick in 2010. The former Michigan Wolverine averaged 44.2 yards per punt as a member of the Patriots.

Blake was claimed off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars after appearing in 16 games as a rookie, recording a team-high 12 special teams tackles.

To make room on the roster, Pittsburgh has released second-year punter Drew Butler and cornerback Isaiah Green.
