Steelers extended P Jeremy Kapinos an exclusive rights tender.

Kapinos will be 28 years old before the upcoming season, but he's only managed two "accrued" years and will be a restricted free agent next offseason. He'll play for $540,000 this year if he keeps his job. Appearing in eight games in 2011, Kapinos ranked 18th in the league in yards per punt (45.0), and 22nd in net. Ideally, the Steelers would upgrade in 2012.

The Packers will not tender P Jeremy Kapinos, making him an unrestricted free agent.

This move was fully expected. The Packers might be wise explore a mid-round punter like Zoltan Mesko of Michigan, because they've continually failed on the free agent market. That assumes Mesko isn't the next B.J. Sander.

Jeremy Kapinos and Durant Brooks are neck-and-neck right now in their competition to be the Packers' punter, according to special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum.

The Packers have struggled to find a consistent punter since Josh Bidwell left after the 2003 season. Kapinos was the team's punter for the final four games of last season, while Brooks was drafted by the Redskins in 2008 and had the job for six games before injuring his hip. Whoever punts better in camp will have the job.

Packers signed P Jeremy Kapinos.

Asked what he expects from Kapinos, coach Mike McCarthy said, "I want him to punt the ball in the right direction. I'm expected to win games. He's expected to punt the ball in the right direction. I'm not trying to be funny."

Jets waived P Jeremy Kapinos.

This should lock in Aussie Ben Graham as the starter. Some reports had Kapinos outpunting Graham at OTAs, but the Jets will stick with their veteran.
