There has been a lot of discussion about quarterbacks in Pittsburgh throughout the offseason. With Ben Roethlisberger still at the helm, the number of backup options he has stretches pretty far. Earlier this year, the Steelers signed former Washington Football Team team starter, Dwayne Haskins. A few weeks back, they signed Joshua Dobbs to a new contract. And just yesterday, the Steelers signed a contract extension with previous 2nd string quarterback, Mason Rudolph.
As stated above, Rudolph signed a 1 year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he will earn a base salary of $1,014,801, while carrying a cap hit of $1,247,867. He also collected a signing bonus of $233,066.
Rudolph is famously remembered for replacing Ben Roethlisberger after Week 2 of the 2019 season when Big Ben went down with a season ending elbow injury. Check out the YouTube video below to see his highlight reel from that year.
