Steelers Have Reportedly Made A Decision About Kenny Pickett’s Future

The Pittsburgh Steelers had arguably the worst quarterback room in the league last season.

It’s hard to envision Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky, or Mason Rudolph starting somewhere else.

Pickett’s numbers weren’t impressive, and he failed to live up to the hype and the rave reviews from the offseason.

CLEVELAND, OHIO - NOVEMBER 19: Kenny Pickett #8 of the Pittsburgh Steelers throws a pass in the third quarter against the Cleveland Browns at Cleveland Browns Stadium on November 19, 2023 in Cleveland, Ohio.

All signs pointed towards the Steelers being ready to move on from their first-rounder and pursue a veteran QB, with the likes of Russell Wilson and Justin Fields as two likely candidates.

Now, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that they’re not going to do that.

Instead, they’ve started their rebuilding process around the Pittsburgh product (Via Dov Kleiman).

Apparently, they want to give Pickett a chance to work under the new offensive coordinator, Arthur Smith.

To be fair, Pickett looked much better in the only full game he played without Matt Canada as his offensive coordinator, and Canada’s work with the offense left a lot to be desired.

Smith has found success with not-so-good and ever-struggling quarterbacks in the past, such as Ryan Tannehill, and one could argue that the Steelers have similar pieces on offense to his old Tennessee Titan teams.

Even so, patience seems to be running out among the fan base, and another failed season could make life difficult for HC Mike Tomlin.

This is a risky bet, and one the Steelers might come to regret if Pickett doesn’t turn the corner soon.
