Zoltan Mesko has hilarious Twitter response to being waived by Steelers

Zoltan Mesko

Zoltan Mesko was waived by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday and responded with a pretty hilarious tweet. Here’s what the punter said:

That’s a pretty humorous response coming from a guy who just lost his job.

There was a pretty harsh assessment of Mesko’s performance this season in an article posted on the team’s website and tweeted by the team’s official Twitter account. Mekso was labeled “inconsistent,” which is the same term coach Mike Tomlin used to describe him. They also talk about how he was ranked the worst punter in the conference and second-worst in the league.

The Steelers waived punter Zoltan Mesko on Tuesday, after he had been inconsistent since being signed before the start of the regular season.

Mesko was signed on Sept. 2 following his release by the New England Patriots, and the Steelers in turn released second-year punter Drew Butler. Mesko ranked 16th in the AFC and 31st in the NFL among punters with a 36.7-yard net average. He punted 34 times, with only three inside the 20-yard line.

Ouch. The Steelers instead added veteran Mat McBriar.

I’m guessing Mesko hadn’t seen that article when he sent his tweet, otherwise he might not have been so flippant about it.
