The Pittsburgh Steelers have made significant changes to their quarterback room this offseason. They 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. The team recently added a third quarterback, Kyle Allen.

Kyle Allen, who spent the 2023 season with the Buffalo Bills, has agreed to terms with the Steelers. Allen went undrafted in 2018 out of Houston and started 13 games for the Carolina Panthers in his first two NFL seasons. He then went on to play for the Washington Football Team in 2020 before 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 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.
