Several readers have brought to our attention a report from ESPN 1500 in the Twin Cities that St. Paul native and long-time Vikings center Matt Birk has been traded from his current team, the Ravens, to the Steelers.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell us that it’s simply not true.
Said one source on the topic of whether a trade has occurred, “Sh-t no.”
Besides, the Steelers have a center in Justin Hartwig. And they drafted a center (who’ll play guard, at least for now) in Maurkice Pouncey.
So that’s that. Birk is a Raven, and he won’t be a Steeler.
