Punter Mesko signs with Steelers

Former Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko, who was waived by the team at Saturday's final cutdown in favor of rookie Ryan Allen, has signed with the Steelers, the team announced.

The Steelers released punter Drew Butler to make room for Mesko.

It looks like a solid fit for Mesko, one of the true professionals to come through the Patriots locker room in recent years. He was the team's Community Service Award winner in 2012 and now he lands with one of the NFL's most tradition-rich franchises.

The Patriots host the Steelers on Nov. 3.
