AP Source: Steelers sign QB Trubisky to 2-year deal | football

By WILL GRAVES – AP sportswriter

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mitch Trubisky will try to replace Ben Roethlisberger.

A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Trubisky and the Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed on a two-year deal that gives Trubisky a chance to compete for the first quarterback job after Roethlisberger’s retirement in January.

The person spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn’t official yet.

The agreement was first reported by NFL Network.

Trubisky, 27, joins the Steelers after spending 2021 assisting Josh Allen in Buffalo after a flame went out in Chicago. The second overall pick of the 2017 draft spent four uneven seasons with the Bears, going 29-21 as a starter and rushing for 10,652 yards on 64 touchdowns against 38 interceptions.

Trubisky joins a quarterbacks room that includes longtime Pittsburgh backup Mason Rudolph. The team is also expected to bring back Dwayne Haskins, who served as Pittsburgh’s third quarterback last season.
