The Pittsburgh Steelers worked out three free agent quarterbacks on Tuesday, a source with the knowledge of the situation confirmed.

The three who worked out were Levi Brown, Jarrett Brown, and John David Booty.

Levi Brown, who was selected in the seventh-round of the 2010 NFL Draft, also worked out for the New York Giants last week.



Booty was originally selected in the fifth-round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Hes spent time with the Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins over the past 12 months.

Looks like they may be trying to add a little depth, Not a bad idea IMO at least for the weeks to come.

I saw this. But a guy like Jeff Garcia who has essentially made a career of these types of situations never got a try out? John David Booty did? Ehh.

Can't get any worse than Dixon, Leftwich and Batch.

Yes it could, we could have Painter (the Colts back-up QB).

oh well..

Daunte Culpepper wasn't on an NFL field when the season kicked off Sunday. He wasn't even watching on television. The 11-year NFL veteran was busy watching film.

"I've got to watch tape of the Hartford Colonials," Culpepper said. "I'll watch the NFL here and there, you know, if a national TV game is on and I don't have anything to do."

Culpepper will kick off a different season as a member of the Sacramento Mountain Lions, who open their United Football League season Sept. 18 at Hartford.

"I want to showcase myself to those who doubted me because I was injured or for whatever reason," Culpepper said. "I just want to go and show them. I'm glad I have a platform."

Who cares who they bring in because Ben will be back in 2 and we have 2 wins already which I didn't think we would have by now( I predicted 2-2) so i'm happy with what we got and who wants to pay a scrub like garcia to sit on the bench, NOT ME.

With Dixon gone for atleast 3-5 weeks at this point, it makes sense to bring in a warm body till Ben comes back. I would be surprised if they didn't bring in someone else at this point.

Exactly who I'd want to backup. I've always been a Culpepper fan & would love to see him get another shot in the NFL.

I blame Tampa Bay.

Cullpepper fan WOW, how can anyone like this dude he has sucked ever since Moss left him. He can sling it and that is it and I'm not so sure he can even do that anymore.
Expected coming from a browns fan.

Not that he was any great shakes, but if Brian St. Pierre is available they should offer him a shot. He is familiar with the offense and can hand off with the best of them!
