QB Byron Leftwich Signs Two Year Contract With Buccaneers
Steelers free-agent backup quarterback Byron Leftwich has agreed to a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers according to ESPN. The deal is for $7.5 million according to John Clayton. Leftwich will be scheduled to make $2 million in 2009. He will also have a $3.5 million roster bonus in 2010 that has to be paid at the start of the NFL free-agency period. If the Buccaneers pay it, Leftwich could make $5.5 million in 2010. This leaves the Steelers with the option of re-signing Charlie Batch or going into the season with Dennis Dixon as the number two quarterback.
