Steelers rumors: Mason Rudolph trade eyed by team; PIT 'unwilling' to trade QB

The Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly in no rush to move on from quarterback Mason Rudolph, even with calls from other teams.

According to the NFL despite interest elsewhere, the AFC North Club Network’s Tom Pelissero is still ‘unwilling to trade with him’. While Rudolph is expected to be No. 3 behind Mitchell Trubisky and Kenny Pickett, Pelisero noted that he “has only made $3 million this season and Pittsburgh isn’t giving up. He.” On Friday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported, “It sounds like the Pittsburgh Steelers will listen at the right price. “Potential Rudolph deal.

The latest development means they haven’t received an offer for that price, and keeping him in the near future may be the right thing to do . After all, if any injuries come up early in the season, teams in the league may need short-term quarterback repairs, which only adds to Pittsburgh’s clout in such discussions.

While Rudolph is probably best known for taking Miles Garrett’s helmet swing during the infamous 2019 event , which led to a defensive suspension for the Cleveland Browns, but he already has a better resume than most three-backs.

He has gone 5-4-1 as a starter over the past three seasons, including eight of the 2019 campaign starts and All victories.

Oklahoma State product completed 62.2 percent of his passes for 1,765 yards that season Rep. Ben Roethlisberger’s 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions at least helped the team tread water without a starter. Yet Rudolph’s long-term future may not be in Pittsburgh.

Not a rookie who is speculated to be behind on the depth chart and who plans to become a free agent after the upcoming campaign . He could be a cheap backup option for the Steelers given the current roster structure, but they could get him some value in a trade before he could leave this offseason.
