Skins Talking to Free Agent QB Byron Leftwich

Now that the attempt for Jay Cutler has passed and things with Jason Campbell are okay, the team is talking about bringing in a veteran backup QB, that being former Jaguar, Falcon and Steeler Byron Leftwich. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that the team has talked to him, and that a contact is being thrown around.

Leftwich, was a top-ten pick of the Jags in 2003, but was cut by Jacksonville only eight days before the start of the 2007 season. After a bad stint in Atlanta, then won a Super Bowl ring as Ben Roethlisberger’s backup in Pittsburgh.

If he does join the club, he would have to battle with backups already on the roster – Todd Collins and Colt Brennan. The move would be a homecoming for Leftwich, who is from the DC area.
