Steelers release Heisman winner Troy Smith

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released veteran quarterback Troy Smith, a former Ohio State star who won the 2006 Heisman Trophy.

Smith signed with the Steelers earlier this year. He has also spent time with the Omaha Nighthawks (2011) of the United Football League, the San Francisco 49ers (2010) and the Baltimore Ravens (2007-2009). The Ravens drafted him in the fifth round (174th overall) of the 2007 draft.

Smith played in 20 NFL games with eight career starts.

He led Ohio State to a 12-0 record and the No. 1 ranking in 2006 before the Buckeyes were beaten 41-14 by Florida in the Bowl Championship Series title game in Glendale, Ariz. Smith threw 54 TD passes in his career, third best at Ohio State.

Heisman winner Smith looking to revive career

Former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith is hoping to revive his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Smith hasn't played in the NFL since being cut by the San Francisco 49ers following the 2010 season. He last played with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Smith will have to beat out veterans Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch to make the team, but he says he's up to the challenge. Smith captured the Heisman in 2006 after leading Ohio State to a spot in the national championship game.

The 27-year-old Smith says he's not sure why his career hasn't panned out, but doesn't view his Heisman win as a burden because of all the doors it opened for him on both a personal and professional level.
