How much did the Steelers pay Mitchell Trubisky

How much did the Steelers pay Mitchell Trubisky: After much discussion, the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to have found their new quarterback. According to NFL reporter Mike Garafolo, the Pittsburgh Steelers and former Buffalo Bills quarterback Mitchell Trubisky have agreed to a two-year contract.

Trubisky is a former Chicago Bears first-round choice who most recently backed up Josh Allen in Buffalo. His deal with the Steelers could be just what he needs to get back on track.

Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins are currently under contract with the Steelers, and up until now, Rudolph had the inside track to start in place of Ben Roethlisberger this season. Pittsburgh intends to bring four quarterbacks to training camp, so a draught pick isn’t out of the question.

 

How much did the Steelers pay Mitchell Trubisky?

Trubisky, 27, was drafted in the first round by the Bears in 2017. His four-year, $29 million contract included a $19.17 million signing bonus, and he completed the final year of it.

Trubisky’s fifth-year option was declined by Chicago last year, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Last year, the Bills signed him to a one-year deal.

In six games for the Bills in 2021, Trubisky completed 75% of his passes for 43 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. He also ran for 24 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Trubisky’s two-year contract features a basic salary of $14.25 million, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. With incentives, the transaction might be valued up to $27 million.

With nearly $13 million in incentives, there’s reason to assume the Steelers have high hopes for Trubisky as a starter. For the starting job, he’ll face Mason Rudolph, Dwayne Haskins, and a fourth quarterback.

 

Signing QB Mitchell Trubisky was the safest decision – Why?

The 27-year-old former University of North Carolina standout will be given the opportunity to take over as the Steelers’ starting quarterback in 2022.

According to Stat Muse, he comes to Pittsburgh with a 29-21 record as a starter. During his five seasons in the NFL, he had 64 touchdowns and 38 interceptions. He has a career completion rate of 64.1 percent, which is comparable to the 64.4 percent completion percentage of the person he is projected to replace in Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger.

Make no mistake, the Steelers are in a win-now mindset and did not want to enter the 2022 NFL Draft without a starting quarterback.

When the team picks No. 20 overall in the selection, there will most likely be multiple possibilities; but, you have to think that Head Coach Mike Tomlin did not want to rely on an inexperienced quarterback to bring this team back to the playoffs next season.

According to NFL analyst Aaron Wilson, the Steelers were never seriously interested in acquiring the services of Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, who is now available through trade. They failed to negotiate a blockbuster trade for Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers.

Kirk Cousins, the Vikings’ quarterback, has agreed to a new contract. Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota, both free agents, have a history of injury and/or accuracy difficulties.

That left QB Jimmy Garappolo and maybe free agency QB Jameis Winston as the only alternatives. Both are recovering from injuries.

For the Steelers, signing Trubisky was the safest decision. The organization will keep QB Mason Rudolph on the roster as insurance—someone who is familiar with Mike Tomlin’s scheme and the Steelers culture and can come in if needed.
