    Why not bring him in for a look? Who knows, may end up on the practice squad.....would be cool to watch him at camp.

    He throws a lot of balls into the garbage cans, he can teach ben how to throw the ball away a bit more in a game.

    I can see Tanney becoming a cult hero already. If he impresses enough to stick around he'll most likely land on the practice squad. And maybe become a 3rd QB next year.

    True , I'm kinda shocked they resigned both Batch and Leftwich. Tanney is just the perfect camp darling tho. Div 3 school, total longshot, if he makes a few plays in camp watch the cat calls start chiming for him to make the 53.

    That was a short lived experiment...

    Rookie orientation begins tomorrow, and I’m sure the Steelers will come up with someone to play quarterback. That someone won’t be Alex Tanney of Monmouth College. He’s now going to work out for the Buffalo Bills at their orientation.

    Tanney reneged on an apparent agreement to work out with the Steelers during their orientation. However, he changed his mind, called the Steelers and said they were okay with it. It’s really no big deal. The Steelers quickly turned to another quarterback, Oregon’s Darron Thomas, for a tryout this weekend. Maybe he’s the next Dennis Dixon, another QB from Oregon whose Steelers career never took off despite his early promise. No one has signed Dixon yet, by the way.

    Here’s a story on that:

    That was a dumb move on his part because he could atleast had a shot at the 3rd Qb on our team and maybe even number 2 in the next year.
