QB - PIT
Week 7 Outlook
The Pittsburgh Steelers have claimed QB Joshua Dobbs off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Dobbs is now back in Pittsburgh where he began his career in 2017. He was a fourth-round pick out of Tennessee and spent two seasons in Pittsburgh prior to joining the Jaguars in 2019. He joins Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges as backups to Ben Roethlisberger in the Steelers’ quarterbacks room.
QB Joshua Dobbs has been released by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mike Glennon was also waived on Saturday, which leaves Gardner Minshew II and Jake Luton as the only two quarterbacks in Jacksonville. The Jaguars are going all in on Minshew in his second season.
The Jaguars have traded a 2020 fifth-round pick for Steelers’ QB Joshua Dobbs.
With Nick Foles (clavicle) likely headed to IR, Gardner Minshew was the only healthy QB on the Jags’ roster. The trade for Dobbs provides needed depth at the position, and it’s highly likely Minshew remains the starter and Dobbs the backup while Foles is out.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joshua Dobbs completed 6-of-11 passes for 95 yards in a 17-7 win over the Chiefs in Saturday's preseason action. Dobbs threw one interception and rushed once for five yards in the win.
Dobbs took over for Mason Rudolph late in the second quarter and played all of the third quarter. The two are competing to be the primary backup to starter Ben Roethlisberger when the season begins.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joshua Dobbs completed 5-of-8 passes for 85 yards in a 30-28 win over the Buccaneers in his team's preseason opener on Friday.
With starter Ben Roethlisberger sitting out, Dobbs got the start and led two drives before giving way to Mason Rudolph. The two are vying to be the backup quarterback for the Steelers.
