Steelers pull surprising move to sign Rivals QB after cutting his salary to joined steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had an eventful two days in the quarterbacks room. After trading away Kenny Pickett on Friday, they pull off the trade that everyone has been waiting for from the Chicago Bears.

Per multiple reports, the Bears are sending quarterback Justin Fields to the Steelers for no more than a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft, which can become a fourth-round pick if Fields plays at least 51 percent of Pittsburgh’s offensive snaps in 2024.

Chicago owns the No. 1 overall pick in April’s draft and are expected to select USC signal caller Caleb Williams. The NFL world has been waiting for Chicago to trade Fields to a potential suitor, but the asking price from the Bears was rumored to be multiple No. 1 picks, as they got last offseason for the No. 1 pick.

The Steelers now have Russell Wilson and Justin Fields in the quarterbacks room.

 The Pittsburgh Steelers have traded quarterback Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles per reports on Friday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Pittsburgh will receive a third-round pick, No. 98, and two 2025 seventh-round picks. In addition to the quarterback, Philadelphia will receive a fourth-round pick, No. 120, to complete the deal.



Steelers' Justin Fields Is Victim Of Savage Report From Analytics Chief: "Justin  Fields Is Bad"

Pickett was taken by the Steelers as the No. 20 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and started 24 games for Pittsburgh in the last two seasons. Pickett’s record of 14-10 wasn’t good enough as his inconsistent play and injuries hampered his hometown Steelers.

The Pitt Panther led six fourth-quarter comebacks with seven game-winning drives, but is overall play was not impressive. When Pickett went down with an ankle injury last season, Mason Rudolph stepped in to start, and remained the starter even after Pickett was healthy.

The signing of Russell Wilson this week made both Rudolph and Pickett expendable, and both are now with other teams after Rudolph was traded to Tennessee this week.

Former Ravens, Jets and Browns quarterback Joe Flacco has inked a deal with the Indianapolis Colts per a report from Adam Schefter.

The 2023 Comeback Player of the Year signed a one-year deal worth up to $8.7 million with $4.5 million guaranteed per the report.

Flacco is expected to back up starter Anthony Richardson who is coming off a season-ending injury from last season.

 Former Saints and Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has agreed to join the Cleveland Browns on a one-year, $4 million deal.

The former No. 1 overall pick in 2015 joins his third team after five seasons as the starter in Tampa Bay and four as a backup in New Orleans.
