Adding a known veteran quarterback would be a wise decision

Another position that was mostly neglected during the draft was quarterback. It came as a shock after the Steelers spent some time and resources on a few draft prospects heading into the weekend. Many predicted that this position would be addressed in the later positions of the draft, but that surprisingly did not take place.

Instead, undrafted free agency was the lone accomplishment to ensure that at least three quarterbacks will be on the roster heading into mini-camps. One should imagine that there will be plenty of activity for the Steelers regarding the signal caller position as training camp gets closer. There are a couple of free agent options that could make a lot of sense for Pittsburgh to sign.

Mason Rudolph is still out there and would be an upgrade as the third string quarterback. Does he want to return? Does the club want him? It makes more sense with each day that passes with him unsigned. Ben DiNucci is another name that makes a lot of sense. He is from the Pittsburgh area and had a great season with the XFL's Seattle Sea Dragons. He was able to seemingly progress as a player and deserves another shot in the NFL. Joining the Steelers would allow him a year to learn and potentially become the top backup in 2024.
