The Pittsburgh Steelers decided Friday to cut Jerrod Johnson and keep veteran Charlie Batch as the team's third quarterback, according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The Steelers didn't make the decision easily, with reports last week indicating that the team had been impressed 24-year-old Johnson, and was looking for a way to keep him with the organization.
Analysis: The fantasy football ramifications won't be felt unless both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich go down with injuries. Still, it's disappointing that fans never got a chance to see Johnson's athleticism shine in Pittsburgh. It would have been interesting to see what might have blossomed if he latched onto the practice squad as a wide receiver. Don't be surprised to see Johnson land with another team in due course.
