PITTSBURGH — When the Steelers traded third-string quarterback Josh Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday for a 2020 fifth-round pick, it signaled a final end to the battle between Dobbs and Mason Rudolph for the Steelers’ backup quarterback job that began all the way back in the spring.

Rudolph won that battle with a superior performance during training camp, but head coach Mike Tomlin cautioned last Tuesday that Rudolph would have to continue to earn that job.
