Rumors of a Steelers Quarterback Swap ahead of the season

0

Third—string quarterback Mason Rudolph remains on the Steelers’ QB depth chart ahead of the 2022 season-at least for now.

According to numerous reports, the Pittsburgh organization may purchase a veteran backup at some point before/during this upcoming season.

According to Jerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rudolph and his agent have not yet asked for a deal. It is reported that the Steelers may want to keep their long-standing reserve in case injuries interfere with their already uncertain QB depth table.

According to sources, Rudolph and his agent Tim ​​Younger has not been approached by the Steelers to trade him. The Steelers would like to keep Rudolph to protect themselves from what happened in 2019 when they traded No. 3 quarterback Josh Dobbs shortly before Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending elbow injury in week two.

As expected, Rudolph ended up last in the hierarchy after a quarterback fight with rookies Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett.

“I’m a competitor,” Rudolph said over Dulac. “Anyone who wants to compete wants to be the best on the field, but I can’t control it. I will have a good positive attitude and I will do everything in my power to help us win.”

The Steelers will kick off their 2022 season with a week one matchup against the Bengals on September 11.
