Mike Tomlin on finding Steelers post-Ben Roethlisberger franchise QB Im excited about that challenge
For 18 years, the have entered every offseason knowing the answer to the most important question in football: Who is your starting quarterback? This offseason, for the first time since Terrace Marshall Jr. Jersey 2003, that answer is unclear, as the expectation is that is hanging up his cleats."We are proceeding with that a sumption," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said, .Unlike some other teams in similar positions, the Steelers have not really been aggre sively planning for post-Roethlisberger life. The only two other quarterbacks on the roster are and -- neither of whom Jaycee Horn Jersey has distinguished himself as a future NFL starter, when given opportunities to play.Tomlin seemingly knows A.J. Bouye Jersey he doesn't have his future starter on the team just yet, and that the Steelers have a search on which to embark. "I'm excited about that challenge," Tomlin said of finding his team's next franchise QB, . "Those of us that are competitors are. It's a challenge. It makes you uneasy." While Rudolph and Haskins remain on the roster, Tomlin seemingly made it clear that they're not nece sarily viewed as starter material."Both guys, Mason and Dwayne, have had their moments, but they'll have to prove Zane Gonzalez Jersey that," Tomlin said. "And not only in the team development proce s, but through playing itself. There are guys that start that I wouldn't Brian Burns Jersey characterize as everyday starters. They'll be given an opportunity to establish themselves and there's going to be competition, there always is. So, they'll write that story. But I think that both guys have positioned themselves to fight that fight with what they've done from a work standpoint and a profe sionalism standpoint in 2021." The Steelers have own the No. 20 overall pick in Derrick Brown Jersey the 2022 NFL Draft, which could potentially leave them in range to select one of the pa sers in this cla s. It's considered a weaker quarterback crop this Clay Johnston Jersey year than last, though, so the Steelers might prefer to go shopping in free agency or seek a trade. Who is under center next season obviously remains to be seen, but we know who it won't be. And that's a pretty big change.
