Pirates lose in St. Louis, the guys debate if Locke should have been pulled earlier? Steelers have new kicker in camp.
The Steelers signed veteran kicker Garrett Hartley.
Hartley is entering his seventh NFL season. He spent time with the Cleveland Browns (2014) and the New Orleans Saints (2008-13). Hartley originally signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted rookie free agent on April 28, 2008, out of the University of Oklahoma.
In 59 career regular-season games, Hartley has made 85-of-104 field goal attempts and 178-of-179 point after attempts. He has seen action in four postseason games, making all eight field goal attempts and all 15 point after attempts. Hartley will wear No. 8.
To make room for Hartley on the roster, the Steelers placed quarterback/wide receiver Devin Gardner on the Waived/Injured List.
