Steelers Bring Back QB Josh Dobbs on 1-Year Deal



The Pittsburgh Steelers are bringing back Josh Dobbs, signing the quarterback to a one-year deal. The deal was announced by Dobbs’ agent Mike McCartney with a tweet Wednesday afternoon.

Dobbs returned to the Steelers last season after being traded away to Jacksonville prior to the 2019 season. The 26-year-old, who was drafted by the Steelers in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft, has spent most of his NFL career serving as a backup in Pittsburgh.

He appeared in the Steelers Week 17 game against the Browns last season, completing 4 of his 5 pass attempts.

With the return of veteran Ben Roethlisberger, Dobbs returns to a Pittsburgh quarterback room that currently includes Roethlisberger, Mason Rudolph and the recently added Dwayne Haskins. Dobbs is likely going to be competing for a spot on the Steelers depth chart during Training Camp, likely even there as a security if someone is injured or to push Haskins to be at his best.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed
