Charlie Batch Resigns with the Steelers

Charlie Batch will sign a one-year contract with the Steelers Wednesday, a source close to the quarterback said this evening.

Batch, who is an unrestricted free agent, will earn $745,000 in 2009 plus a $50,000 signing bonus.

His signing comes days after veteran Byron Leftwich signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent. Leftwich was Ben Roethlisberger's backup last year after Batch broke his collar bone in a preseason game.

Well i thought it was a good move by the Steelers seeing as Lefty signed with the bucs and i personally dont think Dixon is ready to become the backup QB. Even saying that i think that the Steelers should have an Open Competition for the backup QB spot. Batch has shown he can be a reliable 2nd option and i think that it was a solid move. Any Steeler Nation input on the Backup Qb situation?
