Pittsburgh Steelers Ink WR Plaxico Burress, QB Brian Hoyer

As expected today, the Steelers made some roster moves – one was expected, the other – quite the surprise.

First the expected one, which is QB Brian Hoyer, who joins the team as an insurance policy since the team will be without starting QB Ben Roethlisberger and backup Byron Leftwich Sunday in Cleveland.

Leftwich has been ruled out for the game vs the Browns with multiple rib fractures. 37-year-old Charlie Batch will get the start for the Steelers, while Hoyer will be the backup.

Hoyer played last with the New England Patriots, and has never started a pro game.

    The steelers should be looking 4 a starting qb in free agencie not a back up don’t get me wrong about bacth love the man 4 being able to go out there and not lose games but we need some 1 who can go out there. And win some…….steelers need a vet some 1 with game time exp…..like a mc nabb or some one.
