According to Mike Garafolo on Twitter, a reporter for the NFL Network, the Pittsburgh Steelers have reached an agreement on a two-year deal with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.  Jeremy Fowler from ESPN has corroborated the report.  

Trubisky is a former 2nd overall pick for the Chicago Bears in 2017.  He also played in six games with the Buffalo Bills last season, but hasn't started a game since the 2020 season.

Trubisky is 29-21-0 as a starting NFL quarterback and will battle for the starting job with current Steelers Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins.  In 2018, Trubisky was elected to the Pro Bowl when he threw for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.  

The quarterback talk has been blistering this offseason as the Steelers look to replace future Hall of Famer, Ben Roethlisberger.  Reportedly the deal is for two years at $14.25 million total, but is worth up to $27 million with incentives.
