Steelers release QB Mitch Trubisky

The Mitch Trubisky experiment has run its course in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have released the 2017 second overall NFL draft pick, who appeared in 12 games after signing with the Pittsburgh as a free agent in 2022.

Trubisky, who will turn 30 in August, was set to earn $4.25 million next season. With bonuses, the cap hit would’ve been $7.556 million, or 3.1 percent of the team’s limit.

In seven starts, Trubisky had a 2-5 record. He threw for 1,884 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

With the Trubisky era coming to an end, the Steelers are now tasked with finding a replacement to back up Kenny Pickett or take over the reins while Pickett develops in a reserve role.
