After losing out on becoming the Steelers starting punter for the second consecutive season, Jordan Berry has found a new home in the North Division, rather the NFC than AFC.
Berry signed with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, three days after being released by the Steelers in favor of 7th-round pick Pressley Harvin III.

Joining the Steelers in 2015, Berry punted in 91 games for Pittsburgh but faced criticism throughout his time in the Black and Gold, compiling a 44.4 yards-per-punt average despite a career-high 45.8 mark in 11 games last season.
The Steelers cut Berry to begin the 2020 season in favor of 15-year veteran and two-time pro bowler Dustin Colquitt, signing the now 30-year-old after five games with Colquitt amassing 20 punts averaging 43.1 yards.
The six-year veteran will replace Dustin’s brother Britton, who was cut as the corresponding move, to be the team’s new punter for 2021.
