QB Mason Rudolph leaves the Steelers and joins the Titans after signing a free-agent deal

Quarterback Mason Rudolph, whose contract was ending, became the first Pittsburgh Steelers player to move to another team in free agency when he agreed to a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday.

Quarterback Mason Rudolph, who was on an expiring contract, made history as the first Pittsburgh Steelers player to join a new team in free agency. This happened when he agreed to a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday.

As per the NFL Network, Rudolph's deal is valued at a maximum of $3.62 million.

At 28 years old, Rudolph had been with the Steelers for six seasons. The Steelers were interested in re-signing him, but their plans changed after they signed nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson in free agency.

In 2023, Rudolph moved up from third to first on the depth chart and ended the season as the starting quarterback in place of the injured Kenny Pickett and benched backup Mitch Trubisky. He finished with a 3-0 record as a starter, helping the Steelers reach the AFC playoffs. Rudolph also played as the starting quarterback in the team’s AFC wild-card round loss to Buffalo.

During his brief time as a starter last season, Rudolph completed 74% of his passes, throwing three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Rudolph achieved a record of 8-4-1 in his 13 career starts with the Steelers. He played in 21 games for the team.

The Titans have second-year quarterback Will Levis as the expected starter, with Malik Willis as the other quarterback on the roster.

Earlier in the offseason, the Steelers saw former players Mitch Trubisky and Chuks Okorafor leave for other teams before the start of free agency, as they were granted their release.
