Report: Steelers Sign K Garrett Hartley

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost veteran kicker Shaun Suisham for the season to a knee injury Sunday night in their preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings and they have now apparently signed another kicker to the roster to replace him.

Following a tryout, kicker Garrett Hartley was signed to the 90 man roster, according to his agent Erik Burkhardt.

Hartley was originally signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2008. After failing to make the Broncos roster, he was signed by the New Orleans Saints on October 29, 2008 to replace Taylor Mehlhaff, who was released. In 2009, Hartley served a four-game suspension to start the season after testing positive for a banned stimulant. He also missed the entire 2011 season with the Saints after injuring his hip during a preseason game. Last season, Hartley kicked in two games with the Cleveland Browns.

For his career, Hartley has a 81.7 made field goal percentage. Additionally, he has made 6 of 8 attempts of 50 or more yards during his career, but has never kicked at Heinz Field.
