I don't think the Steelers have the luxury of starting a rookie QB on day 1 due to the poor play of the o-line. Don't be surprised if they pick him up!
Agreed. I wouldn't give up a first to get him but Ben misses time every year then comesback injured and plays bad. We need a very good backup that can guide us thru at least 5 games
