Report: Steelers, QB Mitch Trubisky agree to part ways

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a decision to make about their starting quarterback in 2024 and the answer will not be Mitch Trubisky.

The Steelers and Trubisky mutually agreed to move on, NFL Network reported Tuesday night. Trubisky had two years left on a three-year, $19.4 million contract he signed last May.

Trubisky joined the Steelers as a free agent in 2022, the same year Pittsburgh selected quarterback Kenny Pickett in the first round of the draft. Trubisky began that season as the starting quarterback but soon gave way to Pickett.

While Pickett dealt with injury and regression in 2023, Trubisky made two starts before the Steelers eventually turned to Mason Rudolph, who helped guide them to a wild-card berth.

In 12 games (seven starts) for the franchise, Trubisky completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,884 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He added four rushing touchdowns.

Since entering the league as the No. 2 overall draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2017, Trubisky has amassed 12,536 passing yards, 72 touchdowns and 48 picks across 69 games (57 starts) with the Bears (2017-20), Buffalo Bills (2021) and Steelers. He is 31-26 all-time as a starter.
