Josh Dobbs is re-signing with the Steelers on a one-year deal, according to Dobbs' agent Mike McCartney. The Steelers now have four quarterbacks under contract in Ben Roethlisberger, Mason Rudolph, Dwayne Haskins and Dobbs.
Depending on what happens with Haskins, it would appear that Dobbs will just be a camp arm or will be placed on the practice squad depending on if the roster is expanded again to COVID-19 protocols.
Dobbs was a fourth-round pick out of Tennessee by the Steelers in 2017 and has played in six regular-season games, but with no starts. He has completed 10 of 17 passes (58.8%) for 45 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception, along with a quarterback rating of 39.1. He's also rushed for 31 yards on six carries (5.2 average).
Dobbs was traded to the Jaguars for a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft in 2019 after losing the backup role to Mason Rudolph. He only last one year in Jacksonville, however, and was released by the Jaguars in September of 2020 and signed with the Steelers shortly after.
