The Steelers announced several major roster moves on Monday, including the release of Mitch Trubisky.
NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo first reported the news, saying the decision between the team and Trubisky was mutual.
The #Steelers and QB Mitchell Trubisky have decided to mutually part ways, sources say. The sides spoke to assess the situation and Trubisky, 29, gets a fresh start just over a month ahead of the start of the league year and free agency. pic.twitter.com/FqEFhqcuei

Harvin and Okorafor were both drafted by the Steelers, while Trubisky signed on as an unrestricted free agent.
Trubisky signed with the team in 2022, to start at quarterback, but he was replaced by Kenny Pickett after three and a half games. He then served in a backup role in 2022 and 2023 until he was usurped by Mason Rudolph.
According to a report by our partners at SteelersNow, releasing Trubisky provides the team with significant salary cap savings and allows him to talk to other teams earlier in the free agency process. The Steelers absorb a $4.6 million dead cap hit on their 2024 rolls and save $2.9 million is salary cap space since they released him before June 1.
