Don't expect any changes at QB for Steelers in 2018

Don't expect any changes at QB for Steelers in 2018

Ben Roethlisberger, Landry Jones and Josh Dobbs will be Pittsburgh's quarterbacks for the 2018 season.

On Monday, Steelers.com's Labriola all but assured Steeler Nation that no changes will be made at the quarterback position this offseason, as the Steelers will enter the year with Big Ben, Jones and Dobbs as the team's quarterbacks for the second consecutive year.

"With Roethlisberger on board for a couple of more seasons, with Jones under contract for another season, and with Joshua Dobbs continuing to work on the fundamentals of the position," LaBriola wrote, "it doesnt seem as though the Steelers will need to be looking for anything at this position during the upcoming offseason with the exception of a fourth arm for training camp and the preseason."

Last week, team president Art Rooney II said that Big Ben has expressed interest in playing three-four more seasons, as the team may look to offer Roethlisberger an extension this offseason. Roethlisberger is currently signed through the 2019 season. Unlike a season ago, Big Ben said immediately following the AFC divisional loss to Jacksonville that he will be back for the upcoming season. Roethlisberger enjoyed another banner year in 2017, throwing for 4,251 yards with 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 15 regular season games.

Jones, who signed a two year contract extension last offseason, completed 23 of 28 passes for 239 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his only game in 2017, a 28-24 victory over the Browns in Week 17. For his career, Jones has a 3-2 record as a starter while completing 63.9 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns against seven interceptions.
