313

Former Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has returned to the Buffalo Bills by completing a new contract.

Tim Graham was the first to share that discussions between the two groups were taking place on Wednesday. Mike Garafolo from NFL Network later verified the information. The terms were not revealed right away.

Trubisky, who just encased up two seasons in Pittsburgh, got cut by the Steelers in February and hit the free-agent market. He had two additional years left on the deal and was projected to stay with the franchise until 2025.

Pittsburgh’s choice to let go of Trubisky resulted in Kenny Pickett becoming the sole quarterback on the Steelers roster. General manager Omar Khan said the team’s intention to bring back impending free agent Mason Rudolph.

Trubisky accepted the NFL in 2017 as the second in general pick, signing with the Chicago Bears. He played for four seasons in Chicago, starting 50 of 51 games before they went separate ways before the 2021 season.
