He was saying we're closing to signing Troy Smith QB...thought I'd pass this on, found it to be interesting.

I don't care who they sign as long as it results in Dixon moving on.

Didn't he just get arrested over Christmas?

Seems fine as a cheap option to compete for the #3 QB role at best, or at worst, provide a camp arm.

I mentioned that he signed in another thread. He's a good option considering all of the backup QB's are UFA's.

Our we only allowed to look at black backup QB's or something? What am I missing here? Why don't we give McNabb a call?

He did. Doesn't sound like a real serious deal:

Cleveland, Ohio – According to a FOX 8 Cleveland news report, former Ohio State Buckeye and 2006 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Troy Smith was arrested in Cleveland.

Smith, a Cleveland, Ohio native and former standout at Cleveland high school powerhouse, Glenville, was a NFL quarterback with the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers was arrested Friday night for a traffic violation.

Reports would further state that Smith had an outstanding warrant for driving under a suspended license.

A former fifth-round pick of the Ravens in 2007, Smith would compile a8-5 record in 13 starts, pass for 1,734 yards and a QB rating of 78.5.

Smith would go 3-2 as a starter in San Francisco, highlighted by a 356-yard, one touchdown perfomance in a victory of the St Louis Rams.

San Francisco’s new head coach, Jim Harbaugh would decide to not retain Smith, who would sign with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Does anyone think that if the Browns draft Robert Griffin III as speculated that Colt McCoy could get the axe? If so he could be decent backup material.

I think we had a brief discussion on this in the Jerrod Johnson thread as well. Just seems insane to me.....

Don't try to ruin the day that Arians got fired.

The thought of seeing McNabb in black and gold would make me puke, much like he did (allegedly) in the Super Bowl.

Why the hate for Dixon? He's started a whole 2 or 3 games but is labeled a bust. I'll bet you Terry Bradshaw is glad you weren't his coach early in his career. :wink:

Dennis Dixon is as good as gone and we need someone to take his roster spot. also, I'll bet we signed Troy Smith to a very modest contract so there isn't really any risk in bringing him into camp and letting him compete for one of the backup QB positions.

You forget that Colt McCoy is white...we haven't had a white backup QB in Pittsburgh since the Mike Tomczak era. We'll have to wait until RG3 flames out in Cleveland, then pick him up. :stirpot
