Usually, the bargain shopping doesn’t begin until after the first week of free agency. The Steelers got a bargain on the first day.

Via Albert Breer of SI.com, the two-year contract ti be signed by Bills quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has a base value of $14 million. While the specific structure will shed more light on the situation, this is a deal that puts Trubisky ahead of Mason Rudolph on the depth chart — but that hardly guarantees that Trubisky will be the starter.

He’s a bridge at best, a placeholder at worst. He could be supplanted by a draft pick, if the Steelers use a first-round selection on a quarterback.

Or maybe he’ll be the guy. The Bears went to the playoffs twice with Trubisky as a starter. Unless and until another franchise quarterback shows up, the Steelers could have done a lot worse than Trubisky. Without him, they may have been preparing to.

  1. Other than desparation reach, there is not a single first round talent available this year’s NFL draft in the QB position.

  2. Quarterback musical chairs and the music is still playing. Be some other moves but figure Steelers could do worse as the only real QB to move was going to be Russell Wilson (sorry Mr. Wentz but way too expensive for the production)

  3. Trubisky is and was every bit as good as Fields ahs a chance to be. but I’ll guess we’ll just have to wait and see how the Steelers do.

  4. I am not a Mike Tomlin fan….. However

    1) He gets the most out of players like WR Mike Wallace, WR Antonio Brown, RB Le’Veon Bell, and WR Martavis Bryant
    2) He can get blood from a stone for players like WR Hines Ward, SS Troy Polamalu, QB Big Ben, TE Heath Miller, and many others.

    If anyone is going to get the best out of Trubisky it will be Mike Tomlin.

  5. Regardless of money, Biscuit needs to get back to competing and earning a job. If he wins the starting job and the receivers can catch the ball, everything will take care of itself.

  6. All the best to Mitch, I predict he will do well. He got some top notch QB rehab with Daboll.

  7. I like the signing. I was wondering if they’d look at Trubisky or even Mariota. Canada’s offense may actually work a little better with a more mobile qb. Let’s hope so. Looks like it’s his job to lose, though.

  8. Build the offense around Mitchell Trubisky, which Matt Nagy either refused to do or couldn’t do, and “he’ll be the guy.”

  9. If you look at Trubisky, he has done well. Media tries to bury him because he was picked over some others. He is 29-21 as a starter. Good TD to int ratio.
    Would have won a playoff game but kicker missed a 43 yarder. In 2 playoff games, he did pretty well. He is fast. Watch out, he gets to re-group now, and will be better version of himself as he is at the right age. The pedigree is there. Look at his combine stats vs Deshaun Watson. Looks like the same person, size, speed everything. I look for success for this young man.

    I like this signing. Now they need a new center & guard.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    They signed Mason Cole from the Vikings as a center.

    Eh, his TD to INT ratio is 1.68 which is not pretty at all. Roethlisberger’s career weakness was INTs and his ratio was 1.98.

  12. I like the signing. They didn’t mortgage the future via a trade of draft picks or break the bank and use up badly need cap space to rebuild OL and some D parts. The man has upside and prefer him over anything reached for in this draft. I’m more than willing to give him the chance and build the team around him. Good luck Mitch. I think the Steeler culture will be good for him after the Bears debacle!
