Steelers sign Trubisky to new 3-year deal
The Pittsburgh Steelers signed quarterback Mitch Trubisky to an extension that will keep him under contract through the 2025 season, the team announced Friday.
Trubisky, who had one year left on his previous deal, is now on the books for $19.4 million and can earn up to $33 million as part of the new agreement, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
"We feel good about our quarterback room, so that was an important piece," general manager Omar Khan said on "The Pat McAfee Show." on Thursday. "Obviously, Kenny Pickett is our starter, and we feel really good about Mitch Trubisky in the role he's in, and he feels good about it."
Trubisky joined Pittsburgh on a two-year deal last season. He started the first four games of the campaign for the Steelers before they replaced him with Pickett. The 28-year-old passed for four touchdowns against five interceptions in seven appearances (five starts) last year.
A first-round pick in 2022, Pickett completed 63% of his passes for 2,404 yards and seven touchdowns against nine interceptions in 13 appearances as a rookie. The 24-year-old also rushed for 237 yards and three scores.
The Steelers are also bringing back quarterback Mason Rudolph, who's been with the team since 2018.
