Pittsburgh was the only team to place a claim on Wilson, who was cut by Jacksonville on Wednesday. The 27-year-old Wilson joins Ben Roethlisberger as the only quarterbacks under contract for the 2013 season with the Steelers at the moment

In his senior season, Wilson was again the starting quarterback, ahead of Greg McElroy. He led the Crimson Tide to a 12–2 season, with victories against #9-ranked Clemson Tigers, #3–ranked Georgia Bulldogs, and #15-ranked LSU Tigers. In the regular season finale, he led Alabama to 36–0 victory over in-state rival Auburn, ending a six-game losing streak to the Tigers. After finishing the regular season 12–0, #1 Alabama eventually lost to #2 Florida in the SEC Championship Game. In the 2009 Sugar Bowl, Alabama was defeated by the Utah Utes, 31–17.

Wilson holds every significant passing record in Alabama school history.

-- Thanks, Wikipedia! I guess this is a classic case of a semi-successful collegiate Quarterback not being able to bring whatever talent he had to the next level.

Not a bad kid to have as a back up, if thats the intent. He can manage a game and did it well in the SEC.

What a waste of time,might as well pull a drunk yinzer out of the stands(no offense to all yinz out there:wink02:) hopefully this is just for the practice squad because the Steelers need a starter quality back up because we all know Ben will miss a few games next year

I'm not sure he is number 3 material on a team that probably will use number 3 QB at some point in the season.

you're all wrong - our next back-up

Zac Dysert, Miami University (Ohio)-- 6'4", 228

"I've always looked up to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers," Dysert said at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. "He grew up 20 minutes from me. Ben was always a big name in our area. It would be exactly like following in his footsteps."

I take it Batch and Leftwich are done. If so would think their injury problems are the reasons why. As long as JPW isn't Brian Hoyer, I don't care. Draft a QB to compete with JPW, IMO.
