The Steelers released first year QB Jared Zabransky and added a player as part of the NFL International Practice Squad Program, the team announced todayThe Steelers added WR Marvin Allen(5-10, 180) of London, England to their roster today. He will remain on the team’s practice squad for the entire 2008 season. Allen, 25, spent the 2006 season on the Steelers’ practice squad as the team’s NFL Europe International Practice Squad player. He spent the 2007 season on the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad as part of the same program. Allen played three seasons (2005-07) in NFL Europe with the Frankfurt Galaxy, Amsterdam Admirals and Rhein Fire, respectively.
The addition of Allen will allow the Steelers to carry 81 players on their training camp roster.

I thought we normally bring 4QB's to camp, so now its Ben, Batch, Dixon...unless they get another camp arm by then.

Maybe they like what they see of Dixon as a QB. Still havent heard any news on Dixon being used as a WR or KR......has anybody else?

Awesome game with some big plays... Boise St. was clearly overmatched and I remember rooting for them as the underdog.

Steelers must like what they have seen so far in Dixon, or not liked what they have seen in Zabransky
