    Tannehill can push Pickett and knows the offense Smith wants to run.

    Not to mention he will have better weapons than he is leaving at Tennessee except maybe RB.

    Re: Any Other Steelers Fans On Here?

    A. Wilson, B. Fields, C. Tannehill.......... or D. more of Pickett/Rudolph.

    I list them in order of preference (with C. and D. about the same).

    The Buffalo Bills have signed veteran quarterback Mitch Trubisky to a two-year deal, the team announced on Thursday (March 7).

    Trubisky, who spent the past two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was released last month, which allowed him to sign with a team prior to the official beginning of free agency next week. The 29-year-old had previously spent the 2021 season with the Bills as a backup to franchise quarterback Josh Allen.

    Speaking of the Bills, their former center, Mitch Morse is scheduled to visit Pittsburgh. Morse, a Bills cap casualty this offseason, would be a solid signing to stabilize the position while also allowing Pittsburgh to target other positions of need (ILB, CB, OT, maybe WR) in the draft.

    Russell Wilson is also in for a visit, maybe as soon as today. Denver's going to be on the hook for his entire contract, so a team can sign him at the vet minimum, or close to it. That's super tempting.

    Thought I read the Steelers were going to go with Pickett and Rudolph.

    It's the offseason, so if you wait five minutes, it'll change. Multiple times.

    Arthur Smith's passing attack asks his QBs to attack the middle of the field and Russ flat out can't do that. However, getting him at the league minimum may be too tempting. He can still throw the go ball and the Steelers have guys who can go get it.

    Reportedly, Wilson talked with Smith "for hours" and was super happy. But who knows how much of that is real. I'd normally suspect that it might be someone's camp trying to up his market/price, but given that Wilson's bag is already guaranteed, I'm more prone to believing it.

    Well, Pittsburgh reportedly is signing Wilson to a 1-year 1.2M deal. They've got him, now they need to figure out what to do with him.

    Ok, then name a QB the Steelers should have targetted that would have A) fit within their cap and B) guaranteed them a winning season. Go for it.

    Russ has his limitations but I can't blame the Steelers signing him for the league minimum. That means they can keep/acquire talent elsewhere to mitigate Russ' shortcomings.

    Re: Any Other Steelers Fans On Here?

    I like the signing...as long as Russ doesn't freelance and understands Smith's offense. I thought in spots last season he was good in Denver but with a new regime the writing was on the wall for him. He's not a turnover machine and can manage a game and allow the Defense to win them games which is what they needed. He still throws a nice deep ball his issue though is he holds onto it a bit long which generates some bad sacks.

    It's a good signing when you consider the cost...
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Re: Any Other Steelers Fans On Here?

    Russ is an upgrade over Pickett, even if he’s only there for a year, so the Steelers got better as a team with this move. Plus it cost them virtually nothing. What’s not to like? Other than me feeling gross for saying something nice about the Steelers, I mean.
