Report: Steelers Bringing In Bengals Free Agent QB Bruce Gradkowski For Visit
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports via Twitter on Tuesday that Cincinnati Bengals free agent quarterback Bruce Gradkowski is scheduled to visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday.
The Steelers appear to be ready to move on from either Byron Leftwich or Charlie Batch, both unrestricted free agents, this off-season. Batch reiterated recently that he hopes to return in 2013, but his signing is far from imminent right now.
Gradkowski, 30, has spent the last two seasons in Cincinnati as the backup to Andy Dalton. He was 13-of-29 passing for 174 yards in those two seasons in limited action.
Over the course of his career, Gradkowski has a 52.9% completion ratio and a 5.7 yards per attempt number. He has started just 20 games in 7 seasons.
