Welcome to Week One of the 2022 NFL Season and to the Tuesday edition of The Morning After Huddle! There was secrecy. There was intrigue. At long last, the Steelers have a starting quarteback.
Here’s what you need to know:
- First, the Pittsburgh Steelers will roll with veteran Mitch Trubisky as the starting quarterback for Week One. Trubisky is also a captain along with T.J. Watt, Najee Harris, Cameron Heyward and Miles Killebrew. Perhaps even more intriguing is that rookie quarterback and first round draft pick Kenny Pickett is third on the depth chart, behind Mason Rudolph. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, despite the fact that Pickett was coming on in camp, nothing changes with Trubisky being the starter.
- Moving along, Ryan Kerrigan is returning to the Washington Commanders after ten seasons with the team. Kerrigan is joining the staff as an Assistant Defensive Line Coach. Commanders writer Pete Haileys says Kerrigan will prioritize the lack of pass rush on Washington’s Defensive line.
