3. Josh Dobbs

A familiar face checks in at number 3 on this list of veteran signal-callers the Steelers could pursue after the season. Had this article been written about a month ago, Josh Dobbs might've been higher on this list.

After being drafted by the Steelers in the fourth round in 2017, Dobbs has bounced around to several teams. However, this season he appeared to have finally proven he could be more than a fringe roster or practice squad player. Dobbs filled in for the injured Kyler Murray tremendously to start the year, and once he neared his return, the Minnesota Vikings traded for him to replace an injured Kirk Cousins.

Upon arriving in Minnesota, Dobbs took the league by storm, leading the Vikings to several victories, and putting them in the thick of the playoff race. However, things came crashing down when he began to struggle, and when he and the Vikings offense had zero points in the fourth quarter against the Raiders he was benched.

Despite a tumultuous ending to his run as the Vikings starter, it's impossible to ignore that he defied all odds this year and played remarkably well given the difficulties he had to endure. He had to learn three different playbooks in one season and had several good games.

He possesses good mobility, has a good personality, and proved he can potentially be a bridge option in the right situation. If he can recover any of that magic he had during this season, he would be a massive improvement to the quarterback room in Pittsburgh. And his late-season tumble made him a lot cheaper to sign.
