Steelers sign two
Wednesday, February 06, 2008
Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Three weeks after Ben Roethlisberger publicly proclaimed he'd like a tall receiver in 2008, the Steelers acquired one.

Matt Trannon, a 6-foot-6 receiver who played at Michigan State, signed with the Steelers, as did quarterback Jared Zabransky of Boise State.

Trannon signed with the Arizona Cardinals last year as an undrafted rookie and was cut in training camp. He spent time on the practice squads of the Cardinals, Chiefs and Raiders last season. He weighs 235 pounds.

The Post-Gazette reported last week that Zabransky was on the verge of signing. He was an undrafted rookie with the Houston Texans and spent part of last season on their practice squad.

Who couldn't hack it with the Cards, Raiders or Chiefs. But he's over 6'5, so that means he will automatically make the team and become "our Randy Moss". We all know every team needs one, the Patriots proved that last Sunday and the Steelers proved it back in 05. It's a must need.

Anyways, definately going to give the kid a chance, but his resume is not something for me to get excited over. If he can show more consistency than Wilson or Washington, I'll be thrilled.

Hopefully Zabrinsky can learn the system and take over for Batch in 2009.

i think trannon will get his shot in the preseason. the reason why most tall recievers dont make it in the NFL is because they dont have the break away speed to create separation.

Hahah wow Ben's wish comes true a 6'6 receiver thats extremely tall even though he will be on more than practice squad.
I also like Zabrinsky who lead Boise State to an undefeated season with the win over Oklahoma with the amazing final play to win it all!

Cards have Fitzgerald, Boldin, and Johnson.

I don't have any excuses for not cracking the Raider of Chief rosters, though.
