New QBs Bring New Energy: Steelers’ Updated Quarterback Room Set for Exciting Competition

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

In the offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone significant changes in their quarterback room. They traded Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and saw Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph sign with new teams. The Steelers then brought in Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick. To further strengthen their depth chart, they recently added a third quarterback, Kyle Allen.

Kyle Allen is a 26-year-old quarterback who has played in a total of 30 games, with 19 starts, throughout his NFL career. He went undrafted out of Houston in 2018 but managed to start 13 games for the Carolina Panthers in his first two seasons. Allen then played for the Washington Football Team in 2020 before signing with the Houston Texans in 2022. With his impressive record of playing well under pressure and being able to make quick decisions, he is an excellent addition to the Steelers’ roster.

As of now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers, but head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that he will be challenging for the starting position. With Wilson leading the way, competition will be fierce as the team prepares for next season’s challenges. However, with Fields also on board and ready to learn from this talented group of quarterbacks, it’s clear that there are exciting times ahead for Pittsburgh’s offense.
