Tommy Jaggi from stillcurtain.com reported that Jay Glazer, insider on FOX NFL Sunday, believes that the Pittsburgh Steelers won't be interested in getting a rookie QB next season to replace Big Ben eventually. Signing a veteran QB to lead the team after Roethlisberger era ends, would be more into Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert's plans.
Here are the names that could join the Pittsburgh Steelers according to Glazer.
Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson.
All three of them will still be under contract next season but none of them is having a good season or success with their team for a couple years.
The most interesting one is Russell Wilson. Tomlin likes mobile QB. Wilson has the best pedigree of those 3 and he has a powerful arm. He's young, 33 years old, and Seattle could use some draft picks to rebuild the team.
Glazer thinks Pittsburgh doesn't have a bad team, they are over .500, but it would be understandable that they would prefer to go with a veteran to be able to keep the momentum.
Do you think Russell Wilson could be Pittsburgh's best option?
Or Tomlin should go with a rookie QB?
