Gradkowski is a point guard distributor at the position. He's mobile and scrappy. Pittsburgh's surrounding talent is good enough for Gradkowski to earn low-end QB1 production if called upon.


The Steelers have a fine backup quarterback in Bruce Gradkowski. He's athletic enough to keep plays alive with his feet, and he does a good job diagnosing plays as he drops back. Gradkowski is not afraid to throw into coverage, and he' known as a tough leader who teammates can rally behind. If Ben Roethlisberger goes down with an injury, the season will not be lost with the veteran Gradkwoski at the helm. (May 17)

Steelers | Bruce Gradkowski lands on IR (Tue Aug 25, 11:26 PM) - Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers placed QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) on the reserve/injured list Tuesday, Aug. 25, ending his 2015 season. The team signed QB Michael Vick to work as the backup to QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Our View: Gradkowski hasn't thrown a meaningful pass - or heck, an un-meaningful one either - in close to three years. Chances are this is his last round-up.

Steelers | Michael Vick signs (Tue Aug 25, 07:40 PM) - Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, Aug. 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Our View: No surprise here. The Steelers need veteran depth behind Ben Roethlisberger, and Vick gives them that. QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
