But they also apparently want to assure Mason Rudolph returns next season.
The Steelers are nearing a one-year extension with Rudolph, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.
That will tie Rudolph to the Steelers through 2022. He has a $1 million base salary this season in the final year of his deal.
Rudolph, 25, is 5-4 in nine career starts with 2,089 career passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Steelers made him a third-round choice in 2018.
