January 20, 2012|By Edward Lee

Former Ravens quarterback Troy Smith has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner and a fifth-round pick by the Ravens in 2007, spent three seasons with the team before losing the primary backup job to Marc Bulger during the 2010 training camp.

Smith bounced around with the San Francisco 49ers and the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks before agreeing to a deal with the Ravens’ nemesis.

Smith could be competing with Byron Leftwich, Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon for the right to back up starter Ben Roethlisberger.
