Steelers sign backup QB Mitch Trubisky to 3-year deal

PITTSBURGH -- In their second move to secure quarterback depth this week, the Pittsburgh Steelers officially announced a new three-year contract for backup Mitch Trubisky.

Trubisky, a former second-overall pick, is under contract through the 2025 season. Previously, Trubisky's contract ran through the end of the 2023 season and carried a $10.6 million cap hit this season.

Trubisky will make $8 million guaranteed in the first year of the deal, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

With the deal, the Steelers have both 2022 first-round pick Kenny Pickett and Trubisky under contract through 2025, though the Steelers also have a fifth-year option on Pickett.
