The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback position is going to be the most talked-about position for the coming future. Ben Roethlisberger is set to play on a one-year deal with the Steelers in 2021 and if they do not re-sign him before the 2022 season he will either become a free agent or retire. I would guess Ben would retire if the Steelers were to let him test free agency, but that is getting ahead of ourselves here.
Bleacher Report recently wrote an article Predicting the Landing Spots for the NFL's Best 2021 Free-Agent QB's. Before I begin on Bleacher Report's prediction I must say it would be shocking to see Andy Dalton in a Steelers uniform. Especially after the beating, he took by the Steelers when he was with the Bengals, but that is just my opinion. Bleacher Report says Andy Dalton's career seems to have settled after the transition from a long-term starter to a backup.
Dalton only started nine games for the Dallas Cowboys, but his performance showed he shouldn't be a starter in the NFL. He's an offensive cog with marginal physical traits incapable of elevating the play of those around him. Last season with the Cowboys was not a different quarterback seen with the Bengal in prior seasons. Dalton has never been a franchise quarterback instead Bleacher Report says he's a caretaker of an offense.
Bleacher Report feels Andy Dalton will bring a veteran presence to the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Ben Roethlisberger were to go down it would help the Steelers from falling flat on their face. Basically, Dalton, who knows the AFC North quite well would be a cheap insurance policy for the Steelers. Pittsburgh could keep him as an experienced backup while hoping Dwayne Haskins matures after taking a step back this fall.
Let's be honest here. Andy Dalton in a Steelers uniform would be a shocking sight to see. He's not a very good quarterback and I would rather have Mason Rudolph start over him.
