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

New-Look Steelers QB Room: Battle for the Starting Position with Wilson and Fields, Allen Still in the Mix

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone significant changes to their quarterback room this offseason. The team traded Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and saw Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph sign with new teams. In their place, the Steelers brought in Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick.

As of now, Kyle Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers, but the team’s quarterback depth chart is still uncertain. Head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that Wilson is in the lead for the starting position, but competition will be fierce as the new team prepares for the upcoming season.

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