Charlie Batch has no plans to retire


Charlie Batch is not planning to retire this offseason. The 38-year-old has served as a backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2003.

The Steelers were forced to turn to Batch last season after injuries struck starter Ben Roethlisberger and then backup Byron Leftwich. He will hope for a similar opportunity this season.

“I’m not closing the door,” said Batch to the Pittsburgh Tribune. “I’m open to whatever is out there for me.” Batch is also interested in working in an NFL front office.

Batch also did not rule out taking a position within a teams front office.

“I’d definitely be open to (Steelers GM) Kevin Colbert teaching me his job,” Batch said.
