Charlie Batch plans to return to Pittsburgh

Posted by Josh Alper on February 28, 2013, 1:30 PM EST


Even before he agreed to restructure his contract, we knew quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would be back with the Steelers in 2013.


It’s less clear who will be backing him up. Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch are both free agents and there hasn’t been much discussion about the future for either one in Pittsburgh. In an interview with WXDX in Pittsburgh, Batch said the lack of any goodbyes from the Steelers leads him to believe that he’ll be carrying a clipboard for them again next season.


“My plan is to come back, and I haven’t heard anything differently from the organization,” Batch said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com “And I think when you leave out of there at the end-of-the-year meetings, you know one way or the other. And they didn’t tell me that they didn’t want me back. So I think that’s a good sign.”

Batch also was asked to weigh in on the hot topic of late in Pittsburgh, namely the anonymous Steeler who leveled criticism at linebacker LaMarr Woodley’s work ethic. Batch had a less negative reaction about the player’s choice to share thoughts about Woodley than some of his teammates, but added that he doubted neither Woodley’s ability nor his desire to help the team.

this is good news. I want either Batch or Leftwich back. Batch did pretty well when he came into play as a back up this past season.

At least one of them has to go. I think Charlie has done enough for this team to be on the roster for another year. He could be a good mentor to a young QB that they bring in. Leftwich apparantly gets hurt watching film of games. You would think he's the 40 year old.

Charlie's helped bail this team out enough times to earn the right to walk away IMO - would be glad to have him back - he is the ultimate team-first kinda guy

I'll take Charlie back. But not Leftwich. I like the dude but he's too injury prone. Take one of them back (I'd choose Charlie) and get another one in FA for cheap. Saw someone suggest Matt Cassel who is expected to be cut following the Alex SMith did in KC. I'd get someone who's fairly young (read under 30 or just about 30) who has started before and done okay but has since shown that they're more likely to be a backup. We got really fortunate with Charlie I have to admit though considering he's a hometown guy and has been very good in a pinch as the backup for nearly a decade now.

What about Matt Cassell? H eplayed for Haley, not well, but as a backup he may be alright. Look what he did in NE as a Backup. Also, should come fairly cheap and should have many years left in the tank. Chaz as a 3rd teamer works though.

I like the idea. He really fits what I'd want in a backup. Someone who has started, is reasonably young, and the bonus here is he knows our OC's system.
