The Pittsburgh Steelers are hosting the most interesting quarterback battle in the NFL this offseason, and we now have more clarity with whom the front-runner is at this point. Friday, the team released its "initial 2022 depth chart," and Mitchell Trubisky is listed as QB1 over Mason Rudolph and rookie Kenny Pickett. 

This shouldn't come as a massive surprise, as Trubisky has gotten run with the starters since OTAs. The Athletic reported this week that Trubisky hasn't looked very sharp as of late, but this battle is far from over. Pittsburgh clearly targeted the former Buffalo Bills backup in free agency, agreeing to terms with him on a two-year deal about an hour into the league's legal tampering period.

"I'm preparing to be a starter," Trubisky said in June. "I feel like no matter what position you're in, that's what you should prepare like. So we're all pushing each other, we're all competing every day.
