Report: QB Michael Vick to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers

Tuesday August 25th, 2015

Former New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick will reportedly meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

After Ben Roethlisberger's backup Bruce Gradkowski dislocated a finger in his left hand in Sunday's preseason win against the Green Bay Packers, the Steelers entered the market for another signal caller.

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, discussions of Vick joining the Steelers originated from his attendance at the Hampton Roads Youth Football camp last month, which was also attended by Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin and many of his players.

Vick, 35, appeared in 10 games with three starts last season for the Jets, throwing for three touchdowns and two interceptions. He had 604 total passing yards and 153 rushing yards on the season.

At the end of last season, the Jets let Vick explore free agency.

“I still know I have a lot left in the tank and I still look forward to playing again one day,” Vick said in June. 

Vick is a four-time Pro Bowler who has thrown for more than 22,000 yards and completed 56.1 percent of his passes throughout his NFL career.
