I can see him requesting a trade (in private,not in the newspapers) to a team.He won't make a ruckus,he won't make it a distraction...but we all know he doesn't wanna stay in Pittsburgh and backup Big Ben.Maybe this is why we resigned Batch...maybe they are planning on trading Tommygun away.
I could see him doing this. Maddox is a classy guy. If he wanted traded he would do it privately probably instead of bringing the media into it big time.

I agree with you Chef. I can't remember seeing Batch play in NFL action. Sure I have seen him practice, but thats different. I am comfortable with Tommy as our #1 back up. I would like to see him stay at that position. If he goes I really hope Batch can fill in that back up spot well.
