  Steelers | Joshua Dobbs back with Pittsburgh    Wed Apr 14, 01:07 PM

Free-agent QB Joshua Dobbs (Steelers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract to remain with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday, April 14. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dobbs sticks with the Steelers to compete for the backup job behind Ben Roethlisberger. Mason Rudolph is considered the primary backup and some even believe he can be the starter of the future. Expect the Steelers to add a quarterback in the draft at some point.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger sputtered to finish    Fri Apr 9, 11:26 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger ranked 31st in yards per pass attempt from Week 10 to the end of the season, and he threw at least one interception in five of his final six starts.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger looked finished near the end of the season. It happens to the best of them, and Roethlisberger is going to try and get through one more year as the starter. We're not expecting much from the veteran this year.

  Steelers | Kellen Mond has talked with PIT    Fri Apr 2, 08:55 PM

Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond said he has talked with the Pittsburgh Steelers on multiple occasions during the pre-draft process.

Footballguys view: Mond is working to be a mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft. He's got a rocket arm and doesn't mind attacking a defense at any level. His mechanics are clunky and he too often tries to make difficult throws rather than find the open guy. Mond is a developmental quarterback, something the Steelers seem to be in the market for with Ben Roethlisberger likely done after the 2021 season.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh, Jamie Newman conversing    Wed Mar 31, 04:21 PM

University of Georgia QB Jamie Newman told ESPN.com's Brooke Pryor on Wednesday, March 31, that he has talked with the Pittsburgh Steelers 'quite a bit' throughout the draft process - including interviews with head coach Mike Tomlin, offensive coordinator Matt Canada and general manager Kevin Colbert.

Footballguys view: Even though the team seems to like Mason Rudolph, they need to find a better quarterback of the future. There's a lot to like about Newman's game. Newman transferred from Wake Forest to Georgia but opted out of the 2020 season for the Bulldogs. He has a big arm and the mobility to be a threat to run. Newman is known as having high football intelligence and is a hard worker. As a Day 3 pick, some team could get a steal if he develops and plays up to his potential.

  Steelers | Kalen Ballage signs with Steelers    Tue Mar 30, 11:27 AM

Free-agent RB Kalen Ballage (Chargers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Ballage flashed a bit during his brief time with the Chargers. He is a big back but he's not a bruiser. Instead, Ballage can catch passes out of the backfield and has some smoothness to his game after the catch. He'll work to get into the mix with Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Samuels.

Free agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on Friday, March 19, decided to re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, accepting a one-year deal worth $8 million according to a source. In doing so, Smith-Shuster bypassed better offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: The Steelers are keeping the band back together for one more year. Smith-Schuster has strong chemistry with QB Ben Roethlisberger and is WR2 worthy for Fantasy GMs so long as he's healthy.

  Steelers | B.J. Finney set to sign    Fri Mar 12, 12:24 PM

Free agent C B.J. Finney (Bengals) underwent a physical exam Friday, March 12, at the Pittsburgh Steelers' facility and is expected to sign with the team if all is clear.

Footballguys view: Finney is a good fallback plan if the Steelers can't sign another veteran or draft a starting quality center in the first or second round. He signed with the Seahawks last year but didn't make it to the end of the year on the roster, instead being sent to Cincinnati as part of the Carlos Dunlap deal. Finney spent five years in the Steelers organization after he signed as a UDFA in 2015, and they liked him enough to sign him to a second-round level RFA tender in 2019.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster unlikely to return    Thu Mar 11, 07:21 PM

Footballguys view: Unless Smith-Schuster is willing to take a one-year deal with most of the pay in the form of a signing bonus that is spread out over "voidable years" like Ben Roethlisberger did, his return is off of the table. Smith-Schuster is just confirming that. The Jets, Giants, Dolphins, and Jaguars are all teams to watch when Smith-Schuster's next destination is announced.

Clemson RB and 2021 NFL Draft prospect Travis Etienne said Thursday, March 11, that he's had recent Zoom meetings with the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and offensive coordinator Matt Canada and feels his versatility would be a good fit with the Steelers' offense.

Footballguys view: Etienne is a big-play back with speed, speed and more speed. He can make big plays happen anytime he touches the ball. He's likely to be a late first-round pick and could be the first running back selected in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Steelers | No tag for JuJu Smith-Schuster    Tue Mar 9, 06:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster did not receive the franchise tag designation Tuesday, March 9, and is set to become a free agent.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Steelers don't have a lot of cap space and Smith-Schuster will leave in free agency. That means the Steelers roll forward with Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and James Washington as their top trio of receivers.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh eyeing Najee Harris?    Sun Mar 7, 08:55 PM

Alabama RB Najee Harris drew interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers during the Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Harris might be the best running back in this draft class. He could be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft. Harris is your classic Alabama back but he's not Derrick Henry. Some have compared him to former Bears star Matt Forte because of his ability as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster likely will leave in free agency since the team will not be able to offer him a lucrative contract because of their salary cap situation.

Footballguys view: This was the expected move all along. The Steelers don't have a ton of cap space, and anything they spend this offseason won't be on keeping Smith-Schuster. If/when he moves on in free agency, the Steelers roll on with a WR corps of Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and James Washington.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger contract details    Thu Mar 4, 02:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger signed a restructured contract Thursday, March 4.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger is taking a page from other veteran quarterbacks like Peyton Manning who had to do this near the end of their careers. He agreed to reduce his pay to $14 million from $19 million in the final year of his contract and spread the cash payment through 2022, per source. The moves lowered his cap hit to $15 million in 2021, giving the team more flexibility.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger lands new deal    Thu Mar 4, 01:18 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger on Thursday, March 4, signed a restructured contract with the team and will return for an 18th season. Terms of the new deal were not immediately available. 'We are excited we were able to come to an agreement with Ben Roethlisberger on a new contract for him to return to the Steelers in 2021,' general manager Kevin Colbert said in a story posted on the team's website. 'We know that Ben can still play at a high level and do special things for this team. Our goal remains the same - to put together a roster that will compete for another championship. We are happy that Ben will be one of our leaders to help us accomplish that goal.'

Footballguys view: Lots of veteran quarterbacks do this sort of move near the end of their career. Roethlisberger makes room to help the team and to ensure that he stays with the team. He looked good at times in 2020 but fell off as the season went on. The Steelers need to make plans for the future because Mason Rudolph is not the answer when Roethlisberger is done.
