The Pittsburgh Steelers currently have one punter on their roster, and that is Brad Wing. The punter that was supposed to accompany Wing on the team's roster and battle for the lone kicking duties was veteran Adam Podlesh.

Podlesh did not report to camp due to his wife giving birth to their child. After a successful, but difficult, delivery, Podlesh is remaining at home.

"Adam has decided not to report to Training Camp at this time due to family obligations," General Manager Kevin Colbert said in a press release from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With Podlesh not reporting to camp, he was placed on the Reserved / Did Not Report list.

The Steelers did not report if they were going to bring in another experienced punter to battle Wing for the punting position on the team.

The team is looking to improve from last year's punting performance from multiple punters. The Steelers finished near the bottom of the league in punting average and net punting average.
