It should come as no surprise that the Pittsburgh Steelers and quarterback Mason Rudolph will go their own ways this off-season. A third-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, his career didn't go according to anyone's plan. After the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger, Rudolph thought he may finally get an opportunity to win the starting job.

Well, shortly after, the Steelers signed Mitch Trubisky in free agency and then drafted Kenny Pickett in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. From that moment on, it was obvious that Rudolph wouldn't get a fair shake. At training camp in Latrobe, Rudolph looked like the team's best quarterback at times. Trade rumors continued to swirl, yet the team kept him as the third quarterback for the duration of the 2022 campaign.

He didn't appear in a single regular season game, which was his fourth season in the league. Obviously Rudolph wants a chance to play somewhere, so it's no surprise that he wants no part of a return to Pittsburgh.
