Steelers extended P Jeremy Kapinos an exclusive rights tender.
Kapinos will be 28 years old before the upcoming season, but he's only managed two "accrued" years and will be a restricted free agent next offseason. He'll play for $540,000 this year if he keeps his job. Appearing in eight games in 2011, Kapinos ranked 18th in the league in yards per punt (45.0), and 22nd in net. Ideally, the Steelers would upgrade in 2012.
