Wide receiver Arnaz Jerome Battle played his college football at Notre Dame University. The San Francisco 49ers drafted him as the 197th overall pick in round six of the 2003 NFL Draft.

At Notre Dame, he grabbed 53 receptions for 742 yards (14.0 YPC) and five touchdowns, and he had 62 rushes for 314 yards and one touchdown. The athletic Battle also played QB at times, going 30 of 69 for 438 yards and two touchdowns.

In 64 NFL games over five years, Battle grabbed 149 passes for 1,792 yards (12.0 YPC) and 11 touchdowns. He fumbled four times, losing two. He’s also returned 37 punts for 356 yards and one TD and 18 kicks for 345 yards. Battle’s made 24 tackles (23 solo) on the coverage unit.On 8th of March 2010, Battle joined the Pittsburgh Steelers team for a three year contract worth of 3.975 million dollars with 975,000 dollars to sign.

Battle’s six-foot-one, 208-pound frame make him good sized for a pro receiver. His straight-line speed and physical play are both very good and his acceleration to his top speed is fine, but his quickness and concentration are both lacking. He can make tough catches one moment and the next drop an easy one. His skills might make him a number one starter but his inability to maintain intensity for the entire game defines him a third or fourth receiver.
