Steelers’ QB Room Goes Through a Complete Overhaul with New Additions

Steelers continue quarterback makeover by adding third option to lineup alongside Russell Wilson and Justin Fields

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone a major shakeup in their quarterback room this offseason. After trading Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and losing Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph to new teams, the Steelers brought in Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick. In addition, they recently signed Kyle Allen, who spent the 2023 season with the Buffalo Bills.

Kyle Allen is an undrafted player who began his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers in 2018. He started 13 games for the Panthers in his first two seasons before moving on to play for the Washington Football Team in 2020. In 2022, he signed with the Houston Texans and played in a total of 30 games, starting 19 of them with 4,734 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. As of now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers, but competition will be fierce as he tries to earn a spot on the team’s depth chart.
