The Steelers have had enough drama with Ben. LeVeon and Antonio Brown recently. I guess what I'm saying is that Jameis is too good to be signed on as a backup. Same for Cam. You bring either one in to any franchise right now and you're creating a QB controvery. With most franchises already having their number 1 set and the others poised to go with a first rounder in this year's drafft, Cam and Jameis will have to wait until an opening arises.
    0% chance of a QB battle in Pittsburgh even if Jameis were signed.

    I'd agree, but it likely depends on how Ben's elbow looks once the season starts. If he comes out looking like 2009 Jake Delhomme and they have a startable backup, I don't think Tomlin will risk his job on the elbow magically getting better.

    Any facebook: Any QB who doesn't wear funny clothes and have an afro > Cam.

    If you're looking for the worst takes in football, Facebook fans will surely have you covered.

    I'd agree....with a caveat.....0% chance unless it appears that surgically repaired elbow is a problem and/or he starts showing his age more and the team appears to be held back by his play.

    I do find it interesting that some of you think Crab Legs' presence would cause controversy yet there's no mention that Mariota's will.........tho a Derek Carr to New England trade so the Raiders can draft someone to eventually replace Mariota is something that could easily happen

    Jameis to Pittsburgh is totally opposite to Mariota to Las Vegas.

    It's hard to think that Winston, given his lack of maturity, is going to go somewhere to be a backup particularly when his whole game is about feeding his ego by showing off his arm - regardless of where the ball ends up. If he ever grows up, he would be scary-good. You can't see Pittsburgh wanting to take on this headache as long as Roethlisberger is the number one.

    Mariota is exactly the opposite, quiet. No one expects him to make waves. Which is funny because you get the feeling that Gruden would love for him to challenge Carr. Really the opposite situation.

    Odd, but Mariota would have been a better fit in Pittsburgh as a backup and Winston would have been a better fit in Las Vegas taking on Carr.

    Carr cap hit: $21,500,000
    Patriots cap space: $893,436

    They'd have to move Gilmore+ to make space.

    Pitt needs a new starter next year without being able to draft one. Mariota isn't their guy.
