Bucs Trade Leftwich to Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers have acquired quarterback Byron Leftwich from Tampa Bay in return for a seventh round pick. Leftwich will make his second appearance with Pittsburgh, with his first stint coming back in 2008.

Tampa Bay has received yet another draft pick, giving them twelve total picks. They are tied with the New England Patriots for the most picks in the upcoming draft.

With Leftwich gone, the Buccaneers are left with second-year starter Josh Freeman, as well as Josh Johnson. With a dozen picks in the artillery, the Buccaneers could draft a quarterback anywhere from the mid-rounds to late-rounds. Possible targets could include West Virginia’s Jarrett Brown or Tennessee’s Jonathon Compton.
