Veteran quarterbacks the Steelers should sign this offseason
Steelers should sign Andy Dalton
A name a lot of Steelers fans will likely groan over, Andy Dalton won’t bring about many smiles as his time with the Bengals was average at best. While he had some stretches of great play, he never took the Bengals anywhere. They eventually replaced him with Joe Burrow, and Dalton has been a backup ever since.
That said, Dalton is very much in his element as a backup. The pressure isn’t on to consistently lead teams to wins, but he can come in and comfortably lead an offense if he has to be turned to. He hasn’t been horrible as a backup, and frankly, Pittsburgh could do a lot worse. Dalton would be a premiere backup to Pickett.
Frankly, I view Pickett as a very similar player to Dalton. I think adding him would provide a stable veteran to sit behind him and help guide him in his second season. If Pickett were to miss any time, Dalton would be a fine short-term replacement. Assuming his deal isn’t huge, Dalton is a logical target for this team.
The Steelers will be looking for a new backup quarterback to sit behind their top pick from last year’s draft. Finding a stable veteran is a must this year, as they no longer need a transitional quarterback at the helm. These five veterans make the most sense for the team to pursue once free agency opens.
