Matakevich Named Special Teams Captain

On Wednesday the Steelers announced the addition of Tyler Matakevich as special teams captain.

Robert Golden served as special teams captain last year, but was not named captain prior to the season. Coach Tomlin had said they were going with a week by week special teams captain, but obviously that changed today.

Last seasons captains walk out for the coin toss in Cleveland.

Matakevich blocked a punt against the Browns that was recovered for a touchdown, and prevented a completion on a fake punt pass by the Vikings in week 2.

He will join Ben Roethlisberger, and Cam Heyward as the other two captains.
