Mason Rudolph Is New Steelers’ Backup

22

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a new backup quarterback. Jeremy Fowler reports Ben Roethlisberger’s new backup will be preseason standout, Mason Rudolph.

Drafted in the 3rd round of the 2018 draft by the Steelers, Rudolph was inactive for all 16 games last season. In Pittsburgh’s final preseason game he connected on 7 of 11 pass attempts for 125 yards, including a nice 31 yarder for a touchdown.

The Steelers still have competent backup Josh Dobbs on the roster. It will be interesting to see if he is moved before Saturday’s roster cutoff.
