Default Steelers trade 7th round pick for Byron Leftwich.

According to http://twitter.com/Adam_Schefter we just traded for Byron Leftwich. I like this trade, in the little play time he had for the Steelers he looked solid and with Big Ben probably getting some sort of a suspension, this pick up is very nice.

Now they don't need to draft an arm for camp.

I'm not sure how i feel. I wanted to see more of Dixon. Leftwich has no touch. He rockets everything and makes his receivers look bad. I'm sure Sweed is not happy to hear the news.

Batch floats everything. Leftwich rockets everything.

My thoughts:

1.They must not have confidence in Dixon. This is his third year. Just play him already.
2. This means the Steelers will keep 4 QBs on the Roster until the suspension is over...then someone has to go...but who? Leftwich or Batch. I'm hoping Batch...nice guy but Leftwhich is better.
3. I hope Ben gets no more than 3 games. We need him back for Baltimore.

Yet Dixon played an awesome game except for 1 play in OT against the Ravens...i think he can handle them just fine. And whos says Byron will be #2 behind Ben...nobody knows...

I think they might give Dixon a few starts while Ben's out and keep Leftwich as insurance. If he does well, Dixon could be #2, Leftwich #3, and Batch out when BB's back.

Wow, there is one good thing for the steelers this month. Give up basically nothing for a good backup and scrub player

Didnt we get a 7th round comp pick for losing Leftwich to free agency.

So in essence Leftwich paid for himself.

How many players can say that they paid for their own trade?

Sorry, My mistake.

Leftwich owes us 5 trade value points to say that he truly paid for himself
