According to XAM Sports via Twitter, the Steelers have signed a new long snapper to the roster:

@XAMSports: LS Matt Katula and the #Steelers have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Congrats to Matt!

The team worked him out last month: (http://profootball.scout.com/a.z?s=127&p=9&c=2&cid=1187228&nid=5981237&fhn=1)
The Pittsburgh Steelers tried out former Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots long snapper Matt Katula, according to a league source.

Katula, 29, played in five games last season for the Minnesota Vikings, filling in when Cullen Loeffler broke a bone in his lower back.

A former Wisconsin player, Katula played with the Ravens from 2005 to 2009 and played eight games two years ago for the Patriots.

For his career, the 6-foot-6, 265-pounder has played in 93 games.

Greg Warren has been with the Steelers since 2005 as their long snapper. This signing shouldn't signify that Warren is on the way out, but rather competition is competition so we'll see who wants it more.
