New Blood Joins the Mix: How the Pittsburgh Steelers Overhauled Their Quarterback Room This Offseason

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone a significant overhaul of their quarterback room this offseason. Following the departure of Kenny Pickett and Mitch Trubisky, Wilson joined the team from Denver Broncos and Fields was acquired from Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick. In addition, Kyle Allen has recently signed with the Steelers.

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