PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Steelers released veteran punter Chris Gardocki on Wednesday, less than a month after selecting Baylor punter Daniel Sepulveda in the NFL draft.
Gardocki, a 16-year veteran and Pro-Bowl selection in 1996, never had a punt blocked and averaged a career-best 45.7 yards per kick last season.
The Steelers traded up in the fourth round of last month's draft to take Sepulveda, the first two-time winner of the Ray Guy award as college football's best punter.
Gardocki signed with the Steelers before the 2004 season. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1991 and also played for the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns.
