Birk to the Steelers nothing more than a false rumor

It appears that the earlier rumor of Matt Birk being traded from division rival Baltimore to the Steelers was nothing more than just a rumor:

Phil Mackey of 1500 ESPN Radio Twin Cities released a Tweet earlier in the day that he had sources that Ravens center Matt Birk had been traded to the Steelers. After about an hour or so the rumor has been shot down by agent Joe Linta. Linta told Tim Yotter of Vikings update that the rumor was not true. The rumor made no sense because no way would the Ravens trade Birk in the division. Also the Ravens are thin at center and did not draft one this weekend. On the flip side the Steelers drafted Maurkice Pouncey this past weekend and veteran Justin Hartwig is penciled in as the starter following offseason shoulder surgery.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
