Steelers may start Trubisky

While the narrative is now shifting from a veteran starting to a rookie possibly getting the nod, Mitchell Trubisky is a name that makes far too much sense for the team to pass over. If the Steelers are set to roll with a veteran and set themselves up for taking a quarterback in 2023, Trubisky makes a lot of sense.

The veteran flamed out with the Bears before having a quiet season as the Bills’ backup. There is some reported interest in him as he prepares to enter free agency once again, as the veteran has a great arm and is competent at making plays with his legs. That said, his decision-making and accuracy have left a lot to be desired, and those traits haven’t progressed much since his rookie season.

If the Steelers wanted a cheap option who fits what the team wants in a future franchise quarterback, Trubisky makes sense. His next contract certainly won’t break the bank and the team could bring him in for a season to see if he is progressing at all. Worst comes to worst he hasn’t and suddenly Pittsburgh has a top pick in the draft. He isn’t a flashy name, but he is still deserving of consideration here.
