Lets "Mayhew" the Steelers?

Looks like Byron Leftwich is out after suffering a torn MCL in the steelers pre season finally. Just checked out behind the steel curtain and their really bummed, cursing the football gods and begging for a Jeff Garcia signing.  

Twitter from Leftwich's agency.

"Our thoughts and concerns are with PPS client Byron Leftwich who tore his MCL this evening. Bad luck for a classy guy."

and this from behind the steele curtain's Michael Bean

"Sad stuff for Leftwich. But that's life in the brutal NFL. We wish Leftwich a speedy recovery with the hope that he can potentially even return later in the 2010 season. But he'll be shelved for a few months at least I'd imagine. "

So why not Mayhew them? My thoughts after the jump....

We've got Stafford healthy and a top back-up in the league sitting on the bench. Steelers have nothing with Roethlisberger also suspended for at least the first four games. I completly understand the value of keeping Hill as security, but the O-line is improved and realistically this isn't our year and we are still building. Why not trade Hill for Leftwich (who should return shortly after the buy week) and a nice pick next year, or even a solid DB? Pittsburgh is desperate right now and a good Mayhew could be had if we play our cards right! Any thoughts?
