The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking a little bit light at the quarterback position right now, and could be set to do something about it.
The Steelers look like they have lost backup Bruce Gradkowski, who suffered a hand injury during their pre-season game this past weekend that is going to need surgery.
That leaves the Steelers with just untested third-year player Landry Jones as the number two to Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers don't seem too enamoured with this and are looking to bring in someone new. That someone could well be Michael Vick.

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, Michael Vick is meeting with the Steelers today ahead of what could be a possible signing for Pittsburgh.
There's a history between Vick and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Both from the Tidewater area of southeastern Virginia, and Tomlin wanted to bring Vick to Pittsburgh back in 2009, after Vick's release from prison, but it didn't happen.
The 35-year old Vick spent last season with the New York Jets, appearing in 10 games overall, and starting three as Geno Smith self-imploded enough for Jets head coach Rex Ryan to turn to a player he really didn't want to.
Vick completed 64 of 121 passes for 604 yards, throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed 26 times for 153 yards.
