Is there a legitimate quarterback battle between Mitchell Trubisky and Kenny Pickett in Pittsburgh? According to a recent report, not really.
While Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has yet to name his starting quarterback, The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly recently indicated that it’s Trubisky who’s the clear front-runner to start Week One.
Per the report:
“Even though Mitch Trubisky, Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph will be pitted against each other to see who replaces the retired Ben Roethlisberger, Trubisky has a significant head start, and the competition will be more for show than substance. If you are digging deep, you are watching to see if Isaiahh Loudermilk can beat out Chris Wormley and what the pecking order will be with the cornerbacks when it comes to base and sub-packages, but that’s about all.”
