Steelers agree to terms with Trubisky on two-year contract
The Steelers didn't waste any time once the NFL's legal tampering period opened Monday afternoon, quickly agreeing to terms with quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Trubisky, 27, agreed to a two-year deal with the Steelers worth $14 million, though it includes incentives.
The incentives could push it to a total of $27 million, but that would include Trubisky doing things such as winning the Super Bowl or making first-team All-Pro.
Trubisky, a Cleveland native, was considered the top target for the Steelers to help ease the loss of Ben Roethlisberger, who retired at the end of the 2021 season.
He'll initially compete with Mason Rudolph to be the Steelers' starter in 2022, but is expected to win that job.
The Giants also were in the mix to sign Trubisky, but he chose the Steelers because they offered a better chance to start.
