Steelers quarterbacks didn’t play particularly well
It wasn’t a great day to be a Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback at Saint Vincent College. One of the biggest questions all offseason was how would this QB group look during training camp and which signal-caller would rise above the rest.
Mason Rudolph seemed to be the only quarterback with a respectable practice. He completed some underneath throws during team sessions but didn’t do anything that turned heads. Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett, on the other hand, really struggled in their first training camp practice as a member of the Steelers.
Truibksy was the first-team quarterback today, but in his first team sessions, he completed just 1 of 4 passes according to Ray Fittipaldo. This was accompanied by a few ugly throws on the day that were nearly picked off. Pickett wasn’t much better, and his final pass of the practice was intercepted by Carlins Platel, ESPN’s Brooke Pryor reports.
Again, this is just one day of practice for two guys, Trubisky and Pickett, who haven’t played with this team before. I wouldn’t read too much into it, but it obviously needs to improve dramatically by the end of training camp.
