The Steelers may have found Ben Roethlisberger’s successor.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Steelers have reached an agreement with Mitch Trubisky. It’s a two-year deal for Trubisky in Pittsburgh and no financial terms have been disclosed.

Roethlisberger announced his retirement after the Steelers lost to the Chiefs in the playoffs, so Trubisky joins a quarterback depth chart that also includes Mason Rudolph and restricted free agent Dwayne Haskins.

General Manager Kevin Colbert said in February that Rudolph would be the starter if the season were starting, but Trubisky’s arrival represents a big change. At the very least, they’ll compete for the starting job and it’s unlikely the Steelers would have made a multi-year commitment to him if they felt he was unlikely to give them an upgrade on what they’ve seen from Rudolph the last few years.

  1. Hahahahahahahahaha. I wonder which QB the Steelers are eying ith the number 1 pick in the 2023 draft?

  2. Whew, this fan of another AFCN team was worried they were gonna find themselves a real QB. I’m good with this move.

  3. I personally love this signing. If Trubisky were available in this year’s draft, he would be the first QB taken.

  4. I thought Tomlin wanted a mobile QB, maybe he is and I just did not know it. One thing for sure in that division he better be.

  5. Damn, was hoping the giants would grab him on the cheap. Seems like a good fit for Pittsburgh.

  6. I live in Pittsburgh and 93.7 The Fan has been speculating about this FA signing, for good or for bad, for two months.

    Hopefully this is a stop-gap which will allow the Steelers to draft OL/DL this year, and a QB in next year’s draft.

  7. I am very disappointed in the decision. I hope I am wrong and Mitch takes the Steelers far, but I thought Rudolph should be given a chance. I would have rather used the money on a free agent for the offensive line.

  8. Good move. Trubisky had winning record in Chicago, has good wheels, and is still very young. Plus way cheaper than Jimmy G. The Steelers can now add much needed help on the offensive line. If they get Tuitt and Alualu back, that D will be far stouter.

  9. Who knows if it’s that much of a commitment. It’s two years and the second could be more of a team option just in case it works out ok.

  10. Well so much for the Watson to Pittsburg talk. I think Trubisky will do very well there.

  11. This is a good signing for Pittsburgh. This team is well coached and they’ll probably be contending for the playoffs with almost any QB at the helm, so why not pick up a young, potentially stopgap option who has playoff experience as well.

  12. Considering the number of QBs that the Bears made look like total garbage in the last decade, I’m actually interested in seeing if MT is as bad as they made him look. Not a bad guy to kick the tires on, honestly.

  13. When you have 3 quarterbacks… you have none. We’ve seen that movie over here before. Zero stars. Good luck to ya!
    ~Warmest regards… Cleveland

  14. I thought that would be a great destination, I think he will fit well with Steeler style football! Loved having him here in Buffalo as a awesome back-up to Allen! He deserves a new chance to start. Good luck Mitch!

  15. Bridge QB – they are drafting whoever will be available in the second round. Ridder oder Willis would both be good choices to develop.

  16. If the stars align and everything goes perfectly, this is a lateral move, a stopgap at best.

  17. Regardless of who the starter is, they should earn the spot, competition is good.

  18. Sounds pretty good to me to have him in the mix competing for the job with Dwayne and Mason.

  19. Trubisky has some physical talent but he’s been inconsistent. Still a lot better than Rudolph. I wonder how much he got to sign?

  20. Trubisky might be ok with Steelers, he showed some talent with the Bears and did get them to the playoffs before. Guessing they will get rid of Haskins now

  21. This may very well be what both sides need.A brand new start and a breath of fresh could be very positive.

    ——————————-

    Im pretty sure that Mitch was signed to be your starter

  23. This may very well be what both sides need.A brand new start and a breath of fresh air could be very positive. Best of luck

  24. So Cleveland guy says Steelers have 3 QBs, which means they have none, huh? Do Clowns fans even still consider Mayfield YOUR QB?

  25. this could be a REAL good move for both MT & the Steeler’s. Good luck to both.

  26. Something you may not know:

    Trubisky stats
    Win Loss 29-21 TDS 64 Ints 38 Completion % 64+% Very mobile

  27. Perfect pick up. Focus on Oline/DLine in the draft. Let these three battle it out. Finish 4-13. Draft QB in 2023.

  28. The Steelers should have drafted Ben’s “next up” years ago and now they are just plugging the hole with this guy. It is what it is.

  29. Funny how people think this signing is okay compared to the negative reaction of the Wentz trade. CW is better than MT.

  30. Trubisky is better than most think, but he will NOT be outdueling Joe Burrow.

  31. Living in Chicago and seeing him, Nagy was the issue. He will now be coached right, and young enough to get it right. Look what happened with Rich Gannon

  32. As coach Tomlin would say, 3 dogs one bone.
    It’ll be interesting to see which of these three young QB’s
    wants it more. Competition will make them all better.

    Welcome to the Steel City Mitch. Best of luck and good health.
    Now get to work and earn it.

  33. I watched him in high school as I lived right up the street. He was phenomenal. As a Browns fan, this is going to be hard because I root for him.

  34. This signing is going to get all kinds of hate. All kinds of hate from people who know nothing about football. Trubisky did all he could under the incredibly incompetent Matt Nagy, his numbers improved every year. I was hoping he’d come to big blue and compete with DJ but I’m happy for him to have this opportunity. The kid can play.

    He doesn’t speak for Cleveland. Trubisky from Mentor, Ohio. Cleveland loves him and if he is coached up, Pittsburgh will too.
