Steelers Work Out Jeff George

When Mike Tomlin says that he will leave no stone unturned in his quest to improve the Steelers, he isn't kidding.

Behind the Steel Curtain is reporting that the Steelers are trying out 44 year old NFL veteran Jeff George. George apparently was seen at the team's south side facilities on the even of Saturday March 31st and will work out this morning for Steelers General Manger Kevin Colbert.

Drafted in 1990 by the Colts, George went on to play for Atlanta, Oakland, Minnesota and Washington.

While George's rocket arm was never in question, his disposition always was another matter. George openly feuded with management coaches and teammates, including a very public spat with then head coach June Jones of the Atlanta Falcons. In fact, George's tenure with the Washington Redskins ended when he rebuffed coach Marty Schottenhimer's call for leadership by saying, "Don't look to me."

Last year when the Petyon Manningless Colts began to struggle, George made it known that his services were available. Colts president Bobby Irsay declined to take his former signal caller up on the option.

If the Steelers do sign George, it is unclear whether that makes Charlie Batch or Byron Leftwich the odd man out on the depth chart.
