The Steelers have signed free agent punter Andy Lee to an offer sheet, agent Eddie Edwards confirmed today.
Lee, who played collegiately at Pitt, was a sixth-round draft choice of the San Francisco 49ers in 2004. Last season he averaged 44.8 yards per punt (gross) to rank sixth in the NFC and seventh in the NFL.
Edwards said the 49ers have seven days to match the Steelers' offer. The Steelers will give San Francisco a sixth-round pick if the 49ers don't match their offer.
