the Pittsburgh Steelers and Mitchell Trubisky mutually agreed to go their separate ways, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported on Monday.
Trubisky, who has been with the Steelers since 2022, is expected to seek a fresh start before the ’24 season, and will look to find a new home in the NFL in free agency in March.
Last offseason, Pittsburgh and Trubisky reached an agreement on a one-year contract extension that will pay him a total of $19.4 million. Just one year into that agreement, the sides chose to part ways.
Trubisky was due $5.25 million in ’24, but after his release was set to re-enter free agency before his age-30 season.
He appeared in five games last season, making two starts, and threw four touchdowns and five interceptions while completing 62.6% of his pass attempts.
The former Chicago BearsNo. 2 pick has made just seven starts over the past three seasons with Buffalo Bills and Steelers, and he will likely be in the running to earn a backup gig when the new league year begins on March 13.
With Trubisky out of the mix in Pittsburgh, Kenny Pickett is the only quarterback left on the Steelers’ roster in the new league year, as Mason Rudolph is also set to hit unrestricted free agency as his contract expires.
