With Ben Rothelisberger retiring, finding a quarterback for next season has been one of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offseason goals.
However, general manager Kevin Colbert believes that backup Mason Rudolph has enough strength. He said in an interview: “If we start today, Mason Rudolph will be the starter. We are also looking forward to seeing the progress. Mason Rudolph’s starting score in the NFL is 5-4-1, although it is still the main backup, but we Looking forward to seeing his further development.”
Mason Rudolph started one game last season in place of Ben Rothelisberger, who tested positive for Covid-19. He completed 30 of 50 passes for 242 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in that game, and the Pittsburgh Steelers tied the Detroit Lions.
“Mason Rudolph has more wins than losses as a starter, and I’m happy with that,” Kevin Colbert said. “But the final test is 16 games, and I’m looking forward to it.”
