Steelers and Punter Jordan Berry Agree to One-Year Contract Extension

Punter Jordan Berry signed a one-year contract extension with the Steelers, bringing him back for a fourth season, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Before Berry’s arrival in 2015, no player had held the punter’s job for two full consecutive seasons under Mike Tomlin. Berry beat out incumbent Brad Wing in a 2015 training camp competition and has punted in all 54 regular-season and playoff games since.

This season, Berry averaged 43.2 gross yards per punt (32nd among NFL punters) with a 39.8 net average (24th in the NFL). Only two of Berry’s 64 punts were touchbacks; 26 pinned a team inside its 20-yard line.

Financial terms were not disclosed. Berry was a restricted free agent and is on track to be an unrestricted free agent next year.
