After he signed a two-year contract with Cincinnati earlier this week, we wrote about Bruce Gradkowski's second career NFL start that led to a Bengals loss in 2006. Gradkowski has a 2-1 record against the Bengals. Now let's take a quick look on Gradkowski's history against the AFC North.
In four games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Gradkowski has a career 33.9 passer rating, throwing seven interceptions with no touchdowns with a completion percentage of 52.2%. It's always important to note that a player's performance in four game, three of which come from different teams, are with personnel that are unlike the current team's makeup. Laughing as you may, Cincinnati does employ a talented group of young receivers on their current roster, including a tight end with a huge ceiling.
Gradkowski only played one game against the Baltimore Ravens, as a replacement to Chris Simms on September 9, 2006. By the time the Buccaneers played the Cleveland Browns on December 24, 2006, Tim Rattay replaced Gradkowski, who failed to throw a touchdown in four straight games with five interceptions. That was his only performance against the Browns.
