Steelers re-signed ILB Stevenson Sylvester to a one-year contract.

Steelers failed to tender restricted free agents ILB Stevenson Sylvester and P Jeremy Kapinos, making them unrestricted free agents.

The Steelers will move forward with Drew Butler at punter. Sylvester appeared in six games last season, all on special teams. He didn't record a single tackle and is probably done in Pittsburgh, barring a re-signing for the league minimum.

Steelers ILB Stevenson Sylvester is out 3-4 weeks with a torn MCL.

He's unlikely to be ready for Week 1. Sylvester's injury opens the door for impressive rookie Sean Spence to back up Larry Foote. Sylvester appeared in just three games on defense last year. He had four special teams tackles.

Steelers ILB Stevenson Sylvester is in the mix as the long-term successor to James Farrior.

Farrior was cut in March, leaving a void at "buck" linebacker. Foote is the favorite as his replacement, but the 31-year-old would be a short-term fix. "Sly," meanwhile, was a fifth-round pick in 2010 and has contributed mainly on special teams so far, playing only 35 defensive snaps in 2011. He'll compete for a top reserve role with Pittsburgh's inevitable rookies at the position.

Steelers signed fifth-round LB Stevenson Sylvester to a multi-year contract.

An outside linebacker at Utah, Sylvester is moving to the inside mack spot with the Steelers. Along with second-rounder Jason Worilds and fourth-rounder Thaddeus Gibson, he'll be charged with improving the Steelers' leaky kickoff coverage unit.

Steelers selected Utah LB Stevenson Sylvester with the No. 166 overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Sylvester was a productive outside linebacker at Utah, but he's limited as an NFL prospect. Never much of a pass rusher, the Steelers can hope he helps fix their awful kickoff coverage units.
