Bruce Gradkowski goes home, for a visit

When we published a team-by-team list of free agents last month, we forgot to list Bengals quarterback Bruce Gradkowski.

We realized our error when Gradkowski personally emailed us.

The Steelers didn’t forget Gradkowski.  Per multiple reports, the Pittsburgh native will visit Pittsburgh.

The seven-year veteran had one of his best days against the Steelers in 2009, while playing for the Raiders.  He led the 14-point underdog Raiders to a 27-24 win at Heinz Field, completing 20 of 33 passes for 308 yards, three touchdowns, no picks, and a 121.8 passer rating.Along the way, Gradkowski became the first Raider quarterback to throw three fourth-quarter touchdown passes since Ken Stabler in 1979.

The Steelers need a solid backup for veteran Ben RoethlisbergerByron Leftwich and Charlie Batch are both unrestricted free agents.

    Can the Steelers sign Tyler Palko to assemble the all burgh back up squad?

    Well, Palko did beat out Flacco at Pitt.

    Why are the Steelers trying to kill me? Will they PLEASE, make a smart decision, like keeping Keenan Lewis, sometime soon? I’m not ready for a re-hashing of the 80s already.

    The Steelers losing to horrendous teams has been a Tomlin trademark since his arrival in 2007.
    No disrespect toward Gradkowski, but he did nothing that other bad quarterbacks of putrid teams haven’t done…
