New additions to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Quarterback Room: Russell Wilson, Justin Fields, and Kyle Allen

Steelers continue quarterback makeover by adding third option to lineup alongside Russell Wilson and Justin Fields

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone significant changes in their quarterback room this offseason. Firstly, they traded Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and saw Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph sign with new teams. In his place, the Steelers brought in Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick.

Recently, the team added another quarterback to their roster, Kyle Allen. Allen went undrafted in 2018 out of Houston and started 13 games for the Carolina Panthers in his first two NFL seasons. He then played for the Washington Football Team in 2020 before signing with the Houston Texans in 2022. Throughout his NFL career, Allen has played in a total of 30 games, 19 of which he started, with 4,734 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions.

As of now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers. However, head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that competition will be fierce as Wilson is currently leading for the starting position.
