Steelers Are Not Interested in Multiple Notable QBs: Report

Throughout the 2024 offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been linked to every big name at quarterback that was expected to become available.

It had given fans hope that maybe the team’s quarterback situation would improve for next season.

Now it looks like any improvement at the position is going to have to come from within the organization.

The Athletic’s Mike DeFabo revealed that sources have said the Steelers won’t be pursuing Russell Wilson even if the Broncos decide to move on from the nine-time Pro Bowler.

“The Steelers are not interested in signing Wilson in the likely event he’s released by the Denver Broncos, a source familiar with the coaching staff’s feelings on the quarterback at this stage of his career told The Athletic.”

The Athletic’s sources also said they aren’t going to go after Justin Fields, Kirk Cousins, or Baker Mayfield this offseason.

“Additionally, Pittsburgh is not among the teams actively working to trade for Fields, league sources told The Athletic’s Dianna Russini. Pittsburgh is also not pursuing Kirk Cousins or Baker Mayfield in free agency, according to league sources.”

If the Steelers are out on all of these notable QBs, then it will be another year of Kenny Pickett under center in Pittsburgh.

Steelers’ Hopes for Pickett

The first two years of Pickett’s career have been disappointing.

He has been responsible for just 17 touchdowns in 24 starts over those two years and has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 1:1 as a passer.

Still, it seems the team has hope that he can succeed in the future now that they’ve gotten him a better offensive coordinator and should be improving the offensive line this offseason.

Arthur Smith has already gone and met with Pickett and it was reported that meeting went well.

The team’s GM also had some positive things to say about Pickett during his press conference at the NFL Combine.
