The Steelers have announced that they have released quarterback Mitchell Trubisky from their roster, giving him a head start on free agency. Trubisky, 29, joined the team before the 2022 season as their bridge quarterback but was replaced by Kenny Pickett after only four games. In his first season in Pittsburgh, Trubisky started one other game and three games this season when Pickett was injured, but eventually was replaced by Mason Rudolph. Over his two seasons with the Steelers, Trubisky went 2-5 with eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Before joining Pittsburgh, Trubisky had a successful career in Chicago where he went 29-21 after being drafted second overall in 2017. During his time with the Bears, he threw 64 touchdowns and 37 interceptions. After leaving Chicago, Trubisky backed up Josh Allen in Buffalo during the 2021 season before landing in Pittsburgh. With Trubisky’s departure from the roster, Pickett is now the only quarterback on the team. However, there are reports that the Steelers are interested in re-signing Rudolph for next season.
