Pittsburgh Steelers Sign QB Michael Vick

Free agent quarterback Michael Vick has signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a recent announcement made on the team’s official website. Rumors of Pittsburgh’s interest in Vick emerged shortly after Steelers backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski injured his hand in last Sunday’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field. To make room for Vick on the roster, the Steelers placed Gradkowski on the Reserve/Injured List. With Landry Jones as the only other full-time backup quarterback on their roster, Vick gives the Steelers some much-needed security in that position. However, that’s not to say his signing hasn’t sparked some controversy. Vick remains a divisive figure for many fans due to his previous involvement in a dogfighting ring. Either way, it may not be long before fans get to see Vick don a Steelers uniform. The Pittsburgh Steelers will face the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Saturday, August 29.

In his NFL career, Vick has appeared in 138 games and has completed 1,767 of 3,151 passes for 22,093 yards, including 131 touchdowns.
