Mitchell Trubisky released from Steelers contract ahead of 2024 NFL free agency

The Pittsburgh Steelers officially announced the release of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on Monday.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network noted that Trubisky has two years remaining on his contract, with $5.25 million due for the upcoming season. However, there was no more guaranteed money on his contract and he had a $1 million bonus that was due on March 15.

Trubisky appeared in five games for the Steelers during the 2023 season, making two starts.

He completed 62.6 percent of his passes, throwing for 632 yards and four touchdowns along with five interceptions. The Steelers lost both of their starts, failing to score 20 points in either game.

The writing seemed to be on the wall regarding Trubisky’s murky future within the organization, as team owner and president Art Rooney II was noncommittal when asked about the caller.

“Mitch, we’ll just have to see where we go with Mitch and the other spots that might be available,” he said in an interview on Steelers.com (4:10).

Instead, Pittsburgh will focus on creating a more competitive quarterback room around starter Kenny Pickett in free agency. Head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed the team’s intentions when speaking to reporters on January 18.

“There’s always competition in this area,” Tomlin said, according to NFL.com’s Nick Shook. “We’re not drafting anyone. I appreciate (Pickett’s) effort and where he is and I’m excited to continue working with him, but he’ll definitely be challenged from a competitive standpoint in the future.”

Trubisky will now look for a new destination for the 2024 season. The former No. 2 overall pick was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2018 after recording a career-high 24 touchdown passes while reaching for a career-high 11 -3 as a starter, although he has failed to reach those heights since.
