Steelers sign LS Retkofsky

File this one under the better-late-than-never category.

Having seen enough of backup long snapper James Harrison against the Giants, the Steelers signed long snapper Jared Retkofsky to a one-year deal.

He now will take the roster spot of injured long snapper Greg Warren, who was placed on the Reserve/Injured List with a knee injury.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Retkofsky spent the 2007 training camp with the Steelers after originally signing with Pittsburgh as an undrafted rookie from Texas Christian University in 2007. He was released during the preseason and now has found his way back to Pittsburgh midway through this season.
