PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers have traded quarterback Josh Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a 5th-round draft pick, according to multiple sources.
ESPN’s Adam Shefter reported that the Steelers acquired a 5th-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for Dobbs, who lost the backup role to second-year QB Mason Rudolph this season.
Dobbs was a fourth-round pick by Pittsburgh in the 2017 NFL Draft, but he only made rare appearances in the regular season in his first two seasons.
