Report: Gradkowski Having Surgery Today, Steelers Hosting Michael Vick

According to Adam Schefter, the Steelers are hosting QB Michael Vick today.

Schefter also reports that Bruce Gradkowski has a dislocated finger, and will be getting surgery today.

Vick appeared in 10 games with the New York Jets last year. He completed 52.9 percent of his passes for 604 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Obviously Vick’s history doesn’t need reiterating. I think there are going to be a lot of Steelers fans who will be very upset if the team signs him. From a football standpoint (putting what kind of human being he is aside), he could be a serviceable backup with some time to get the playbook under his belt.

If his physical checks out, I have to think the team will probably sign him. As Mike Tomlin said in an interview on NBC, the two both grew up in Newport News, VA, and Coach Tomlin indicated that he was interested in bringing Vick in after he was released from prison in 2009, in hopes to help rehabilitate the veteran quarterback.
