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

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone significant changes to their quarterback room this offseason. After trading Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles, the team 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.

To add more depth to their quarterback roster, the Steelers have recently signed Kyle Allen, who spent the 2023 season with the Buffalo Bills. Allen went undrafted in 2018 out of Houston and 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 and signing with the Houston Texans in 2022. 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 of now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers but is still vying for a starting position on the team’s depth chart alongside Russell Wilson. Head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that Wilson is currently leading for the starting position; however, competition will be fierce as the team prepares for its upcoming season.
