Steelers Add Depth to Quarterback Roster with Signing of Kyle Allen and Defensive End Dean Lowry

The Pittsburgh Steelers have recently made several moves to solidify their quarterback depth chart. After signing Russell Wilson as their backup and trading for Justin Fields, the team has now acquired a third-string quarterback. General Manager Omar Khan confirmed that the Steelers have signed 28-year-old Kyle Allen, who has been in the NFL since 2018.

Allen entered the league as an undrafted rookie with the Carolina Panthers and has since spent time with Washington, Houston, and Buffalo. He started 12 games for the Panthers in 2019, showing enough potential to remain on NFL rosters as a backup quarterback. With Allen’s addition, the Steelers now have three quarterbacks on their roster, with the possibility of adding a fourth camp arm in the future.

In addition to signing Kyle Allen, the Steelers have also added defensive end Dean Lowry to their roster. Lowry previously played for the Minnesota Vikings and appeared in nine games with four starts last season. These recent acquisitions are part of an effort by the Steelers to bolster their roster and add depth to key positions as they prepare for the upcoming season.
