Steelers backup QB Leftwich in talks with Redskins
Share with others:
Byron Leftwich paid a visit to the Washington Redskins Friday and the two sides are talking about a contract.
Leftwich does not yet have an offer from the Steelers, where he was the backup quarterback last season after an injury to Charlie Batch in the preseason.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert, their director of football operations, have each said they'd like to re-sign both Leftwich and Batch. Both are unrestricted free agents.
