4. Jacoby Brissett

Another veteran option they could pursue is Jacoby Brissett. Brissett filled in admirably last year for the Cleveland Browns while Deshaun Watson served his suspension. While he hasn't played much this season, as the backup to rookie quarterback Sam Howell in Washington, he is proving that once again he is a nice veteran option to have in the ear of a young quarterback.

Although he's mostly been a career backup, Brissett has had plenty of game experience and has bounced around the league to several different teams. Despite being a late round pick, the 31-year-old signal caller has proved to be a valuable asset in the quarterback room for numerous organizations and would be a welcome addition in Pittsburgh.

There's not too much negative to say about Brissett, as you know what you're getting with him, as he is not a long-term answer at quarterback, but can be a tremendous backup option, and can be a serviceable stop-gap/ bridge option if needed as well. No matter what role he serves on the team, he would be a welcome addition in Pittsburgh, as a tandem of Pickett and Brissett in either order, would be a drastic improvement upon the room the team has employed this season.
