Steelers Expected to Sit Kenny Pickett for Entire Rookie Season, per Report

As the Steelers kick off the 2022 season on Sunday, Mitchell Trubisky is the team’s starter for a Week 1 matchup against the Bengals. And according to a new report, the former No. 2 pick will get the opportunity to line up under center not only against Cincinnati, but for the entire year.

On Fox NFL Sunday, Jay Glazer reported rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett is expected to sit through the entire 2022 season in order to acclimate to the NFL. As a result, Trubisky is the Steelers clear top option for the time being.

“According to Mike Tomlin, this has always been Mitch Trubisky’s team,” Glazer said. “I know a lot of fans said Kenny Pickett as he started playing well in the preseason maybe he has a chance. That has not been the plan there in Pittsburgh. 

“I talked to Mike again this morning and he said this is Mitch Trubisky’s team. His plan is to sit Kenny Pickett all season long, and just let him sit and learn in his rookie season.”
