Steelers added quantity to a quarterback room that needed it
Heading into the offseason, the Steelers only had Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins under contract. Sadly, Haskins unexpectantly passed away and that put the need for the position even higher. Rudolph was being hyped as the probable number one quarterback heading into the next season, but that turned out to not be the case.
Pittsburgh decided to roll with the idea of having a quantitative approach to the position. It has been 18 years since they needed to find a legit starter for the franchise so bringing in numbers might have been the best bet. They decided to add two quarterbacks, one through free agency and the other through the draft.
Mitch Trubisky signed on with the hope of being the starter for this offense. He wants to prove himself in this league after being labeled a bust for many seasons with the Chicago Bears. It still seems like he will be the starter for the Steelers, at least for the beginning of the year.
The draft was hyped up with many names surrounding the franchise as who could go to the black and gold in round one. Most were certain that they would go quarterback and they did that by selecting Kenny Pickett. They added some quality players at the position with two players that could start each week.
