Steelers’ QB Room Boosted with Acquisition of Kyle Allen

Steelers continue quarterback makeover by adding third option to lineup alongside Russell Wilson and Justin Fields

The Pittsburgh Steelers have undergone significant changes in their quarterback room this offseason, as they traded Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and saw Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph sign with new teams. In his place, the Steelers brought in Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos and acquired Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round pick.

The team has recently added another quarterback to its roster, Kyle Allen, who spent the 2023 season with the Buffalo Bills. Allen went undrafted in 2018 out of Houston and started 13 games for the Carolina Panthers in his first two NFL seasons. He then went on to play for the Washington Football Team in 2020 before signing with the Houston Texans in 2022. Throughout his NFL career, Allen has played in a total of 30 games, 19 of which he started, with 4,734 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions.

As of now, Allen is considered the third-string quarterback for the Steelers, but the team’s quarterback depth chart is still uncertain. Head coach Mike Tomlin has stated that Wilson is currently leading the competition for the starting position. However, competition will be fierce as the new team prepares for the upcoming season.

Kyle Allen’s addition brings more depth to an already talented quarterback room that includes Russell Wilson and Justin Fields. With three strong options at QB and competition within each group, it’s clear that no one will take their spot lightly.
