The Pittsburgh Steelers decided to shake up their quarterback room in free agency as they signed Russell Wilson to a one-year deal.

Wilson was released by the Denver Broncos after two tough seasons, and now finds himself in Pittsburgh with a chance to prove that he can still start in the NFL.

However, Wilson’s signing apparently didn’t go over well with Kenny Pickett, who reportedly was not happy about losing his starting spot to the veteran.

Pickett originally seemed like he would get a chance to compete to start, but instead the team decided to trade him to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Without Pickett to back-up Wilson, the Steelers suddenly find themselves short on quarterbacks for the 2024 NFL season.

However, there are some intriguing options for Pittsburgh to explore, via Jonathan Jones of CBS.

“Potential backup options for the Steelers behind Russell Wilson: Justin Fields, Carson Wentz, Joshua Dobbs, Zach Wilson,” Jones reported.

Justin Fields is by far and away the most intriguing option at backup quarterback given his youth, upside, and talent.

Fields is widely expected to get traded by the Chicago Bears, and without a clear starting role, could have to settle as a backup.

Meanwhile, Carson Wentz is a solid fallback option should Pittsburgh decide against trading for Fields.

Wentz spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams and even led them to a win in Week 18 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Joshua Dobbs and Zach Wilson are also interesting, though they don’t present the same sort of upside that someone like Fields does.
