Steelers teammates agree: Quarterback Mitch Trubisky ‘a very good man’

It’s a very thoughtful school among Pittsburgh Steelers fans: Mitch Trubisky is – or should be – calm because the team he signed with as a free agent in March turned around and hired another quarterback. in the first quarter of the following month.

On the day he finished the gym in the summer and summer with his new teammates, Trubisky showed he had no such attitude for the Steelers by signing Kenny Pickett.

“I feel very fortunate and fortunate to have arrived in Pittsburgh,” Trubisky offered, unsolicited, after the final minute of the minicamp Thursday. “I’m really happy to be here with these guys and the team, (o) the coaches and everyone (including) the city and the fans, so I feel like I’m lucky and I’m happy for the opportunity.”

Returns, of course, are original. The club does not meet again for seven weeks, does not play for more than two months and does not open its regular season until Sept. 11. But, borrowing the words that coach Mike Tomlin used on the odds this week, it was a happy time Trubisky heard from the Steelers being returned by teammates to their quarterback who they think is starting.

“He’s a very good man,” said Chase Claypool, a receptionist. “She is easy to get along with, easy to talk to, and very forgiving when you do wrong she doesn’t really care. He goes to the next game.

“She always comes home smiling, and she doesn’t feel depressed. It is easier to be with her and to understand who she is as a person. ”

Less than three months after joining the Steelers on the first day free agents have been able to negotiate with NFL clubs, Trubisky is – at the moment, at least – deeply embedded in the depth chart of the quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger’s future. Offensive co-ordinator Matt Canada said earlier this week that it was made by Tomlin, and through two weeks of group events and three minicamp sessions this week, Trubisky did not relinquish his role as QB1.

Claypool described Trubisky’s actions in the case as “water … smooth” and “very cold.”

“When he’s a guy throwing a ball at you (and the one who’s) you guys laugh with a joke … in the locker room and things, it just makes everything more comfortable,” Claypool said.

The friendly, friendly and friendly atmosphere extends even to Pickett, a football player who many just think has taken the place of Trubisky.

Pitt’s scholar has repeatedly expressed his appreciation for the advice he received from Trubisky and his former colleague Mason Rudolph. Pickett said he plans to take Trubisky to his home in Florida during a break between July 26 and the date of the training camp reports in Saint Vincent.

“We’ve already talked about meeting there, teaching and socializing,” Pickett said. “I want to use these guys (Trubisky and Rudolph), and their best players, as a support and help to learn. I can’t say great things about how they came to be.”

Similar to how Trubisky can’t say good enough about new players. On Thursday, he said “there is no indication of how far this error could go” after complaining about the team’s performance at the minicamp.

“The other part of me wish we were still together next week,” Trubisky said. “We have time to rest, so we need to take care of our bodies and get ready to go to training camps. But it was a lot of fun, especially a few years ago when OTAs with covid look different, stay home, be around. So being together, being able to build chemistry and being around guys and having fun on the field like that, and bittersweet is over. But I am very happy with the work that we have done so far. ”
