Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is hinting at possibly selecting a quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft. This comes after successfully adding QB Mitchell Trubisky to the lineup.

According to ESPN, Colbert spoke to reporters on Sunday in a conference call, and said that the team will not refrain to adding another QB after free agency.

The GM revealed Pittsburgh may resort to acquiring another quarterback from another place, one of which is speculated to be the 2022 NFL Draft.

“We’ve been at the top quarterback pro days because, for the first time in a long time, that may be a position we have to address,” Colbert said. “When we’ve had the luxury of a Hall of Fame quarterback at our disposal, we may not have attended those types of pro days. Is that saying we’re taking one? Possibly. We just want to make sure we’re covered with that class.”

There are two things obvious here: first, that Colbert is set to part ways with the organization after the draft this year, and second, the Steelers are looking for a QB to replace Ben Roethlisberger, who retired earlier this year.

But, Pittsburgh simply is not into signing a veteran QB, according to the GM, which led to the franchise scouring around the free agency market until signing Trubisky to a two-year contract. The Steelers are aware that the 27-year-old was the Buffalo Bills’ top backup.

Perhaps they wanted to do something with Trubisky, considering the franchise outed themselves from the trade market this year and many dubbed the organization as “slow in the QB arms race.”
