Steelers Pick up Leftwich in Anticipation of Roth Suspension

Postby joejlitz » Tue Apr 20, 2010 8:52 pm

The Steelers reacquired quarterback Byron Leftwich on Tuesday by trading a seventh-round draft pick (225th overall) to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- a sign that Pittsburgh expects starter Ben Roethlisberger to be suspended for the start of the 2010 season.

Leftwich backed up Roethlisberger during the 2008 season, when the Steelers won the Super Bowl. Leftwich knows offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' system and could be ready to play Sept. 12 when the Steelers open next season against the Atlanta Falcons, one of the quarterback's former teams.

The Steelers play three teams that didn't make the playoffs last season -- the Falcons, Bucs and Tennessee Titans -- plus the AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens in their first four games, a period that could span any Roethlisberger suspension.
