People Are Calling On The Steelers To Sign Colin Kaepernick After Ben Roethlisberger Was Ruled Out For The Season
The Pittsburgh Steelers are in need of QBs in a hurry after it was announced that Ben Roethlisberger was out for the season with an elbow injury.
Statement by Mike Tomlin on Ben Roethlisberger:
Ben Roethlisberger had an MRI on his right elbow Sunday evening and it was determined by the Steelers’ medical team that surgery will be required. We expect the surgery will be scheduled for this week. He will be placed on our Reserve/Injured List and is out for the season.
Unfortunately, the Steelers just traded third-string QB Josh Dobbs last week which only leaves them with Mason Rudolph as the only QB on their depth chart.
With the uncertainty at the QB position, people are calling on the Steelers to sign Colin Kaepernick, who hasn’t played a snap of professional football in nearly three years.
The Steelers are probably not going to sigh Kaepernick which is a shame because he’s probably better than whichever practice squad QB the team is likely going to sign to backup Rudolph this week.
