It's only a matter of time untill QBs (and other players) start getting hurt.

Behind this line Steelers should be signing a 4th QB.

If it goes deeper than that, I will take a turn.

She was great on The Good Place, but I wouldn't include her in my fantasy football draft.

Honestly, I'd be more surprised if they cut him. The Steelers like being 3 or 4 deep at QB usually. They'd have 4 if Haskins didn't die during the off-season. Rudolph is pretty cheap, since you can pay him backup money, not the starting QB money Garoppolo would want. The objection with Garoppolo is that teams feel like they'd be overpaying for him.

The only people who thought the Steelers were going to trade him because he's the QB3 now are people who are not Steelers fans or follow the Steelers in anyway.  They don't know that the Steelers ALWAYS carry 3 QBs.  Few teams actually carry 3 QBs these days (usually it's 2 on the active roster and 1 or 2 on the practice squad) so I can understand from a completely ignorant point of view why they'd think that... but... yeah...

Also, people weren't signing Jimmy G for the same reason that Baker went untraded for so long... too expensive and coming off a major surgery.

Jimmy G would've been gobbled up by any number of teams if he was simply released but he decided to stay on the 49ers for cheap because he knows their current guy is absolute garbage (seriously, cringeworthy bad) and the team aside from that is great.  He'd rather wait until that day arrives rather than be picked up by some awful team.

Nobody carries 4 QBs into the regular season.

The Steelers did in 2021. The QB depth chart was Roethlisberger, Rudolph, Haskins, Dobbs.

Dobbs spent all of 2021 on IR. He was never on the active roster

I think that most Steelers fans use his middle name too> Mason Farking Rudolph.

There is a home for Jimmy G on the west coast, but I think SF wants to see said team lose any hope of being a playoff contender this year before dealing him.

their current guy is absolute garbage

you mean that genius Shanahan made another mistake?

I could see the cowboys trading a couple cases of shoulder pads for him since they apparently cut every QB not named dak today

I've had a soft spot for dent head ever since he unequivocally demonstrated his stupidity in the scuffle that led to his nickname.

The man is literally to stupid to protect his own life in a game known for head trauma. If the Steelers don't keep him on the roster, social services will have to babysit him, and that would be a major drain on the taxpayer.
