Recent developments in the Steelers’ quarterback situation and the potential pursuit of Justin Fields

Last week, reports emerged that the Steelers were interested in re-signing quarterback Mason Rudolph to compete with 2022 first-round pick Kenny Pickett for the starting quarterback position. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette mentioned that even if the Steelers are unable to re-sign Rudolph, they are not considering bringing in an external quarterback who is looking to be a starter. This would rule out potential options like Justin Fields, who is expected to be traded by the Bears.

However, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com (subscription required) later reported that the Steelers are indeed looking to acquire a quarterback through trade or free agency who will challenge Pickett for the starting role, and this quarterback would not be viewed as a temporary fix. Head coach Mike Tomlin reportedly has an interest in Fields, and the buzz connecting Fields to the Steelers is growing.

Despite these conflicting reports, with some suggesting a potential pursuit of Fields and others denying it, it seems that Pittsburgh is leaning towards giving Pickett a chance to prove himself before considering external options.

In Chicago, there is growing certainty that Fields’ future with the Bears is secure, as the team is expected to explore trade opportunities for him. The Bears are likely to finalize their quarterback plans by the start of the scouting combine, with the priority being to find a trade partner for Fields. General manager Ryan Poles and team president Kevin Warren are reportedly aligned on this strategy.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Chicago Bears’ quarterback situation and the upcoming NFL draft as discussions with other teams progress.
