In the wake of BBen Roethlisberger's retirement, the Pittsburgh Steelers went out and signed Mitchell Trubisky and drafted Kenny Pickett. The job has always been Pickett's for the taking, but this left longtime backup Mason Rudolph without much of a place on the roster.

Naturally, because of this situation, Rudolph's been subject to a number of trade rumors ahead of the league's Nov. 1 deadline. NFL insider Jeremy Fowler recently reported a "state of the union" for the upcoming deadline, and addressed the latest on these Steelers-Rudolph rumors.

Fowler explained how the QB maker has been relatively quiet (just look at the Dallas Cowboys and Cooper Rush), but that the Steelers "will field calls" on Rudolph if they receive them. It's unclear what sort of interest he'll garner, but suggested a "high-level backup" role for a "West Coast" offense like the Los Angeles Rams or San Francisco 49ers is his best bet.

It'll be interesting if the Steelers can flip Rudolph into a future draft pick or add some kind of depth at other positions of need.
