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

Revamped Steelers QB Room: New Faces, High Expectations in 2023

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone a major overhaul in their quarterback room this offseason. Firstly, the team traded Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and let go of Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph. In their place, the Steelers signed Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick. Most recently, Kyle Allen was added to the roster as a third quarterback.

Kyle Allen, who previously played for the Buffalo Bills, has agreed to terms with the Steelers. Originally undrafted out of Houston in 2018, Allen started 13 games for the Carolina Panthers in his first two NFL seasons before moving on to play for the Washington Football Team in 2020. He then signed with the Houston Texans in 2022 before joining the Steelers this season. Throughout his NFL career, Allen has played in a total of 30 games, 19 of which he started, with 4,734 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions.

As it stands now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers, but head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that competition will be fierce as they prepare for next season’s opener. While Wilson is currently leading as the starting position holder
