PITTSBURGH -- Charlie Batch signed a two-year contract Friday to remain with the Steelers as a backup quarterback.
Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
Batch, 35, has been under contract with the Steelers for eight seasons, although he sat out 2004 and 2008 with injuries. He has thrown just two passes since 2007 and 135 overall during his time in Pittsburgh.
Batch grew up in suburban Pittsburgh and is the team's player representative.
