Steelers retain long snapper Christian Kuntz with multi-year deal to prevent him from becoming a free agent

Pittsburgh Steelers, after making a deal with a punter in free agency, are also keeping another one of their special team players for the future.

Pittsburgh Steelers, after making a deal with a punter in free agency, have decided to keep another of their special team players for the future.

Christian Kuntz, the long snapper, has agreed to a multi-year contract, according to a source familiar with the league, on Wednesday.

Kuntz was a restricted free agent at the start of the offseason. The Steelers had until 4 p.m. Wednesday to offer him a contract or let him go free. They avoided that by reaching a new contract agreement with the three-year veteran.

In 2021, Kuntz, an alum of Chartiers Valley and Duquesne, secured a spot on the 53-man roster after winning a training camp competition against veteran Kameron Canaday. At Duquesne, he played as a linebacker.

During the NFL’s legal tampering period on Monday, the Steelers also secured punter Cameron Johnston with a three-year, $9 million deal.
