Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky plans to sign a two-year contract‚ according to a source. The former Illinois star was the second overall pick in 2017 and spent last season as the Bills' backup quarterback. While there‚ he learned from former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey. The two men were in the same room when he was drafted. Mitch Trubisky‚ 28‚ will get a chance to start his career in Pittsburgh. He'll be competing with Mason Rudolph to replace Ben Roethlisberger. But if Trubisky wins the starting job‚ it won't hurt Mason Rudolph's chances in the Steelers' secondary. The deal doesn't change Mason Rudolph's status. After spending the past four seasons backing up Josh Allen in Buffalo‚ Mitchell Trubisky signed a two-year deal with the Steelers. He was rumored to sign a deal with the Steelers for the first time in weeks. Upon hearing the news‚ Trubisky said he is beyond excited to join the team. He'll start in the second half of the season and be a full-time starter. Despite his lackluster performance in Chicago‚ Trubisky is a valuable commodity for the Steelers.
His presence will add competition at the most important position in the league. His arrival also may impact the Steelers' interest in drafting a quarterback in the first round. The Steelers already have a lack of talent in the trenches‚ so Trubisky's presence could make the team more competitive at the most critical position in the NFL.
Well, Mitchell Trubisky fans… you’re about to see if it was just Matt Nagy or if it was indeed Trubisky.
