 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Jared Zabransky, the quarterback who led Boise State's memorable Fiesta Bowl upset over Oklahoma a year ago, signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday.
The Steelers also added Matt Trannon, a 6-foot-6 receiver who starred at Michigan State but was not drafted last year. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals but did not make the season-opening roster. He later spent time with the Cardinals, Chiefs and Raiders as a practice squad player.
Zabransky also was an undrafted rookie a season ago and spent part of the season on the Houston Texans' practice squad. He had 23 touchdown passes and seven interceptions as a senior at Boise State in 2006 before directing their 43-42 bowl upset of Oklahoma.
In that game, Zabransky completed a long touchdown pass on a hook-and-ladder play in the final minute of the fourth quarter to force the overtime, then handed off to Ian Johnson on a trick play for the winning 2-point conversion in overtime.
