At the moment, the Steelers only have Mason Rudolph on the roster and are expected to offer a lesser contract to Dwayne Haskins. According to the general manager, Rudolph would be the starting quarterback for the 2022 NFL campaign.
“We know that we must add someone in the position. I can’t tell you how we’re going to do it yet. We’ll start training camp with four QBs. If today we had to start with Mason as our starter, that would be it. We would look to build the best team around him,” Colbert told Brooke Pryor of ESPN.
Colbert says the Steelers will add QBs: “We know we’re going to add to the position. I can’t tell you how at this point. We will go to camp with four. If we had to start today with Mason as our starter, let’s go. We’ll try to build the best team around him.”
