Mitch Trubisky is under contract with the Steelers for 2023.

The Steelers, though, signed him as a starting quarterback, and he now is a backup to Kenny Pickett. Trubisky would rank among the highest-paid backups in the league with $8 million in base salary and a salary cap hit of $10.625 million in 2023.

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers want Trubisky back, but adds that “might not be as simple as it sounds.”
