    Landry Jones?

    Can we afford to cut him and save a 1.9 million cap hit?
    Could we get by with Dobbs as the primary backup in the limited amount of work we've seen?
    Discuss

    P.S. Feltdizz if you promise not to say anything racial i will un-ignore you......
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    It all depends on where Dobbs is at in his development.

    Jones makes improvements every year. He is a solid back up at this point. He gets no love here but I haven't seen anything from Dobbs yet that tells me he can take over #2.

    While Dobbs is the future I don’t think the Steelers are ready to make that move.

    If the Steelers take Josh Allen or Lamar Jackson, as some of the recent mocks have it, then they may cut Landry loose. Otherwise, I think he's a pretty safe bet to be on the roster for the 2018 season.
    Trade Martavis Bryant for a 4th-round pick

    1) Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
    2) Jessie Bates, FS, Wake Forest
    3) Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
    4) Ken Norton, DT, Miami
    5a) Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame
    5b) Dorance Armstrong Jr., OLB, Kansas
    7a) Will Dissly, TE, Washington
    7b) Brett Toth, OT, Army

    UDFA: Quadree Henderson, WR, Pitt
    Colby Gossett, G, Appalachian St.

    A future starter?

    This is Landry's contract year...I could see the Steelers making a final decision on his future with the team after seeing how Dobbs develops this year...he may simply be allowed to pursue free agency this year...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    Cutting Jones saves $1.9 million, with a $300k dead money hit on the cap. Jones is far from perfect, but I don't think you will find a replacement that is better for $1.6 million.

    Don't get me wrong, I hope Dobbs shows future starter skills. But, right now Jones is the better QB. I'm not sure I agree with your assumption. It depends on what Ben is saying. If Ben is talking 1-2 more years and we don't draft a QB...I think Jones and Dobbs are safe.

    Dobbs showed some signs of knowing the O at camp n got the ball out quick repeatedly but didn't show as well in the preseason games. So to me he remains more unknown then known even a year after the draft. Should he have a great camp n great preseason he could close the gap between himself n Jones but that is what camp n preseason is for. For now we need to keep both.
