This is not your typical obligatory FA signing thread. Troy Smith was just released by the Steelers. He more so fits the mold of Cam than Clausen ever will, oops never will. We can be developing Troy Smith this year at the #3 QB to be our #2 QB next year and going ahead. I don't think that Anderson is going to play too much longer, although it wouldn't be hard for what he's being asked to do, but Troy Smith is a better fit.

Can't say I disagree with this idea.

Him being able to throw more than 10 yards makes him a better fit than Jimmy. His mobility is a bonus.

If we're talking ex-Steeler FAs, I'd rather have Dennis Dixon. I'm all for cutting Pickles though.

Hell, let's just cut Jimmy and roll with 2 QBs. Use the extra roster spot for Plax or Shock. If Cam goes down, we're screwed anyways.

I endorse this idea, though if I'm not mistaken Troy is younger and therefore cheaper than Dixon.

Clausen is the face of the franchise. Why on earth would we release him?

Definitely agree but it's unlikely to happen. In all honesty we'll probably keep clausen. That's just hurney.

Eeeeh, maybe. I don't really know that Smith would stick either.

He's never really shown himself to be a pro level success anywhere and has had his fair share of chances. Just too short to be a successful pro, apparently.

He's one of the guys that I had hoped would succeed in the pros because Jim Tressel took the time to convert him from a running QB to a passer, but it just wasn't meant to be.

That said, there's no compelling reason to keep Clausen at this point.

Not a bad idea. He's definitely > Clausen, though I like the 2 QB on the roster idea better.

Meh, drop Jimmy and go with just two quarterbacks. Use the roster spot for someone useful
