8. Pittsburgh Steelers

Mitch Trubisky in the black and gold? It can’t be ruled out if we are being honest. The Steelers have Ben Roethlisberger who is going to be 39 years old in 2021. Financially, the Steelers can’t afford to cut Roethlisberger because it’d result in $22.5 million dollars of dead cap. The Steelers also have 2018 third-round pick, Mason Rudolph, on the roster, however, he’s yet to prove that he can be a long-term solution.

Pittsburgh is a franchise that’s developed a reputation for replacing players just when the time is right. Trubisky could sign a two-year deal, sit behind Roethlisberger in 2021 and then end up competing with Rudolph in 2022 for a chance at the starting job.

The real question remains to be answered: Would Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin actually want to invest in Trubisky? Tomlin and his coaching staff have always figured out ways to get the best out of their players. This situation is no different. If Tomlin, along with the Steelers front office views Trubisky as a guy who can succeed under offensive coordinator Randy Fitchner and quarterbacks coach Matt Canada, Pittsburgh would likely invest in Trubisky with the thought of it being a low-risk, high-reward kind of move.
