Bills Sign Former Steelers QB

The former Pittsburgh Steelers starter is headed back to the Buffalo Bills.

PITTSBURGH -- Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky is headed back to the Buffalo Bills, agreeing to a new deal to return to his former team, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Trubisky was released by the Steelers at the start of the offseason, clearing $3 million from their salary cap and allowing the veteran quarterback to hit the market early. Since he was released, he was capable of signing with a new team at anytime. 

Trubisky's time in Pittsburgh didn't turn out as planned. After signing to be the team's starter, he was benched just four games in for then-rookie Kenny Pickett. He filled in as the starter during injuries moving forward, but went 0-2 this past season and was eventually benched for third-stringer Mason Rudolph. 

He finished his time with the Steelers throwing eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. 

However, Trubisky was a valuable backup in Buffalo last time he was there, and should be viewed the same as well. The former first-round pick should be a helping hand to Josh Allen and look to fit comfortably in the roster for a second stint.
