Steelers To Work Out Free Agent Quarterbacks Mike Kafka & Brian Hoyer On Tuesday
With Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich sidelined by broken ribs suffered in the 13-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night the team is scheduled to work out a few free agent quarterbacks on Tuesday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports via Twitter that the team will bring in former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka and former New England Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer on Tuesday.
Kafka was originally drafted by the Eagles in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft after playing his college football at Northwestern. Hoyer, a Michigan State product, was originally signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2009.
The Steelers contacted Dennis Dixon, who is currently on the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens, but the former Pittsburgh quarterback opted to stay on Ravens practice squad instead of working out for the Steelers.
