Report: Steelers Aren’t Done Evaluating the Quarterback Position

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Spencer Rattler

The Pittsburgh Steelers appear set at quarterback with Russell Wilson, Justin Fields and Kyle Allen, but they might not be done adding to the position. Aditi Kinkhabwala of CBS Sports said during an appearance on 93.7 The Fan Wednesday that “the Steelers aren’t done at quarterback.”

Their quarterback coaches are scouting the QBs in the draft. Doing their homework. A QB could get drafted by the Steelers late day 2/early day 3, Kinkhabwala claimed.

The Steelers usually like to have a fourth quarterback on the roster for training camp, so an undrafted free agent is likely to be added. However, it would be pretty surprising if they spent a draft pick on a quarterback, unless somebody really intrigues them. They just have so many needs. A QB in the draft seems like it would be a wasted pick.

The Steelers held a private workout for Gannon quarterback Kory Curtis earlier this month, according to MLFootball. Curtis is a former Ohio State quarterback, but thrived up in Erie with Gannon. Over the process he has garnered interest, and has displayed a strong arm in his workouts with teams like the Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys.

Over his two seasons with Gannon, Curtis threw for 5134 passing yards and had an impressive 47 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. While Curtis started at Ohio State, he transferred to Bryant and then down once again to Gannon. But his physical tools have popped, giving him looks across the NFL. The Steelers have looked at quarterbacks to fill out their room, and they currently have three quarterbacks after the addition of Kyle Allen. But a rookie like Curtis could make sense for the fourth quarterback spot. Curtis last played with Gannon in 2022.

South Alabama quarterback Carter Bradley is another guy on the level they were interested in, and quarterbacks coach Tom Arth was sent to Mobile for his pro day. A guy at the Senior Bowl, Bradley was the unknown of the group. If you are not used to watching him, he has some surprising zip on his ball, and he plays with arm arrogance. But it can lead to some baffling decisions, and the mechanics on his front leg are a mess, leading to balls spraying all over the field.
