Troy Smith or Matt Leinart

Now I know that many of us thought the last thing we needed was anymore QB depth with this team, but does anyone think it might be smart to take a flyer on one of these guys as a reasonably priced backup?  If Dixon or Batch go down (God forbid) before Ben get back, who do we have to play?  

I know smith is just another version of Dixon, but I have always liked his game a lot and I think that he could start for a couple teams in this league (SF and Oakland come to mind) while Leinart obviously was terrible in Arizona, but maybe that was more a product of the expectations of a top-10 pick (one who probably had the skills of a second or third rounder) never living up to his hype: granted he brought a lot of it on himself.  

I think one of these guys would make a really good piece (and Troy Smith would light up the Ravens even if we only gave him a little playing time, I bet you he hates them.  And as well he should).  

Other cuts to look into:

Bobby Carpenter: Has the talent, but I don't know what is wrong with him.  I wanted the Steelers to draft him when he came out.

TJ Houshhmandzadeh: Eh Probably not...

Josh Beekman: Guard taken in the fourth round last year got cut by the Bears.  Has potential and could be a decent pick up if the Steelers see anything in him.  Slim pickins this year.  

Joe Burnett: I'm peeved about this cut.  Bring him back!
