PITTSBURGH -- Southern Wayne and University of North Carolina graduate Greg Warren made the Pittsburgh Steelers' final, 53-man roster heading into the 2005 regular season.

The 6-foot-3, 252-pound long-snapper joins a Pittsburgh team that won the AFC North Division last year and finished 16-2 overall -- marching all the way to the AFC title game before falling to the eventual Super Bowl champs, New England. The Steelers open the regular season at home against Tennessee on Sunday after a 3-1 finish in the preseason.

Warren (6-3, 252), a long-snapper, was signed as an undrafted free agent and will wear No. 40, according to the Steelers' website. Mike Schneck, Pittsburgh's long-snapper the last five seasons, also joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2000.
