Could Mitch Trubisky be the Steelers' next starting quarterback? It seems like a new free agent quarterback emerges every week and is mentioned as a fit for the Steelers, but Trubisky makes a lot of sense.
Trubisky was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and was a massive failure with the Bears. The Bears could have had Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun Watson but reached with selecting Trubisky. Perhaps a fresh start for Trubisky could help turn his career around. However, it's very unlikely that he will ever live up to his No. 2 overall selection.
Many think that Trubisky spending a year in Buffalo in 2021 and backing up Josh Allen was beneficial to him.
Along with the Steelers, the Commanders and Saints are also interested in Trubisky, according to Jordan Schultz.
"Bills LOVED having him - and several execs told me Mitch is viewed as a starting QB right now," Schultz said.
Schultz also said that many around the league view Trubisky's fourth season/lack of development with the Bears as a Matt Nagy problem and that sitting a year in Buffalo has helped him, both on the field and in preparation.
Trubisky also received praise from ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky, who said Trubisky should be a starter in the league.
According to DKSportsbook, Mitch Trubisky is (+1000) to be the starting quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers next season. It seems like Trubisky to Pittsburgh is picking up steam, and it's certainly a realistic option, as Trubisky would come on the cheap. He also would be a better option than Mason Rudolph as QB1 in 2022. Trubisky is a logical bridge quarterback for the Steelers.
