Steelers QB Mitch Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky will join the Pittsburgh Steelers, as his representatives and the team worked out a two-year deal for the free agent quarterback to come to Pittsburgh on Monday.

The deal cannot be made official until the start of the new league year at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, at which point Trubisky will be formally announced as a member of the Steelers. In the mean time, he gave a statement to Adam Schefter of ESPN about joining his third NFL franchise.

“I am beyond excited and blessed for the opportunity to be a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers Organization,” Trubisky said to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “I have tremendous respect for the Rooney Family and Coach Tomlin. They have built one of the best rosters in football and I can’t wait to contribute and help this team continue their success.”
