Mitch Trubisky expected to sign two-year extension
According to Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Omar Khan on the Pat McAfee Show, the team is planning on signing QB Mitch Trubisky to an extension.
Trubisky started five games for the Steelers before ultimately being supplanted by rookie QB Kenny Pickett. Khan noted that Pickett is still expected to be the team’s starter, but the organization is happy with Trubisky in his role as the backup QB. Trubisky can provide continuity in the quarterback room and also is a viable starter in the event of injury. The Steelers also re-signed Mason Rudolph, keeping together their QB room from last season.
Mason Rudolph expected to sign with Pittsburgh
Mason Rudolph is expected to reunite with the Pittsburgh Steelers, which will be his sixth year with the team.
Rudolph brings depth to the Steelers quarterback room, but that’s all. He’ll be behind starter Kenny Pickett and backup Mitch Trubisky, so his chances to play will be slim.
