Drew Butler wins the punting job for the Pittsburgh Steelers

Undrafted 23-year old rookie punter Drew Butler beat out 28-year old veteran Jeremy Kapinos for the starting punting job. 
Kapinos has been released by the Steelers.  Butler punted the ball 58 times for 2,566 yards (44.2 avg) last year for Georgia.  He punted the ball 167 times in his four years in college for 7,589 yards (45.4 avg) for the Bulldogs.  This is a good move for the Steelers cap wise, as Butler is cheaper than Kapinos.
