The Steelers signed Heisman winning QB Troy Smith yesterday, he’s expected to take the number three spot behind Ben and Byron.
Troy won the Heisman while at Ohio State in 2006, yet was only taken in the fifth round of the 07 draft by the Ravens– where he played back up to Kyle Boller. Smith saw some playing time when Boller went out with an injury, but fumbled through his first starts. He did manage to squeak out a win against the Steelers in the final week of the 07 season. For the next year he was a small part of the Ravens offense, used mostly as a receiver or under center in short run situations, sharing time with Flacco. Smith saw limited time with the Ravens in 09.
Smith was then released and signed with the 49ers in 2010 and showed some early success but was eventually replaced by Alex Smith. Smith spent the 2011 season in the UFL.
