Steelers sign QB Zabransky, WR Trannon

The front office is getting busy as the Steelers sign quarterback Jared Zabransky and wide receiver Matt Trannon to their offseason roster.

Zabransky, who wasn't selected in the 2007 NFL Draft, spent part of last season on the Texans' practice squad and was later released.

Zabransky was 33-5 as Boise State's starter from 2004-06, including an undefeated season in 2006. Zabransky is perhaps best known for his performance in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl in which he was named Most Valuable Player.

In other news, the Steelers also signed wide receiver Trannon, who hails from Plaxico Burress' alma mater, Michigan State. An impressive 6-6, 235-pounds (a big receiver, Ben!), Trannon spent time on several practice squads last season.
