Pittsburgh — Mitch Trubisky, the former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, has signed with the Buffalo Bills ahead of free agency after being released by Pittsburgh. And, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the agreement is for two years as he returns to his previous team.

According to Pelissero, Trubisky’s contract is for two years and $5.25 million, with $2.7 million guaranteed this season. The Steelers permitted the former starter to enter the free market early, anticipating he would find a team before it started. That has now occurred, with Trubisky returning as Josh Allen’s backup.

 

The former Chicago Bears first-round pick signed with the Steelers following one season in Buffalo. He was given the starting role his first season, but was benched for then-rookie Kenny Pickett four games into the season. He was finally benched for third-string Mason Rudolph this season while filling in for an injured Pickett. Trubisky thrived in Buffalo and was seen as an invaluable backup to Allen. He’ll be able to keep that job when he returns, and he hopes to extend his career with the Bills into his 30s.
