PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers will have a new starting quarterback for the first time in nearly two decades — and Ben Roethlisberger stopped by Wednesday to check in on things.
Roethlisberger stopped by the team’s practice facility on the south side.
He was seen walking around the training ground hugging some of the players before the start of training.
Following Roethlisberger’s retirement in the offseason, the Steelers signed Mitch Trubisky as a free agent and drafted Pitt’s Kenny Pickett with their first-round pick. Both Trubisky and Pickett are in contention for a starting role.
So far, Trubisky has started both of the team’s preseason games, but Mike Tomlin has yet to name a starter for Sunday’s game against the Lions, and it’s unclear who could start the regular season as QB1.
