The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to sign their own well before the free agency period starts in the NFL, and they agree to terms on a one-year contract with two specialists Thursday afternoon.

The first signing was to veteran long snapper Greg Warren.

Warren, along with Ben Roethlisberger and James Harrison is one of the few players still on the roster who has two Super Bowl wins to his name for both Super Bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIII victories.

To compound Warren’s signing, the Steelers also inked placekicker Chris Boswell to a one-year exclusive rights tender.

Boswell, who has been a bright spot on the Steelers special teams since being signed after the Josh Scobee fiasco, had a tremendous postseason, highlighted by his 6 field goal performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional round of the AFC Playoffs.

With Warren and Boswell locked up for another year, the Steelers will likely continue moving their way through their own free agents and bringing back key pieces of the 2017 puzzle.
