Steelers sign QB Leftwich

Today, Pittsburgh signed QB Byron Leftwich - a former No. 1 pick (seventh overall in 2003) of the Jacksonville Jaguars - to a one-year contract. Leftwich will serve as Ben Roethlisberger's backup for at least the next six weeks, as veteran Charlie Batch is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow to repair the broken right collarbone he suffered during Friday's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Batch will be out for a minimum of six weeks following the surgery.
