Trubisky the favorite to win Steelers' starting job ... for now

When the Steelers selected Kenny Pickett with the 20th pick in the NFL Draft last month, Mike Tomlin said the rookie will be given a shot at winning the starting job.

"He'll be given an opportunity to compete certainly," Tomlin said.

But there are competitions and then there are competitions.

The Steelers don't have an incumbent starting quarterback following Ben Roethlisberger's retirement following the 2021 season.

For the first time since 2000, when Kordell Stewart and Kent Graham battled throughout the offseason and into the preseason for the starting job.
