The Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be out of the running based on the most recent Aaron Rodgers report.

Initially, a claim from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport on Friday night appeared to be simply another “Aaron Rodgers hasn’t decided where he’ll play in 2022” report. He did, however, clarify it at the NFL Combine.

Rodgers is “wondering” about his decision, according to Rapoport. The Green Bay Packers were clearly the “back.” “It was always the Denver Broncos,” Rapoport stated when Rich Eisen inquired who the “fourth” was.

With this recent development, Pittsburgh Steelers fans hoping for trade for Aaron Rodgers may put their hopes to rest.

The Steelers have been eliminated from the sweepstakes due to the latest Aaron Rodgers news.

Rodgers and the Broncos have been linked since the trade rumors began, according to Rapoport. That bond has become even stronger since Denver signed former Green Bay offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach this offseason.

Yes, the Steelers have shown themselves to be a hard-charging team at times (i.e. trading up for linebacker Devin Bush in 2019, acquiring defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Miami Dolphins). According to Rapoport’s latest report on the Steelers, retiring general manager Kevin Colbert is looking at all candidates to replace Ben Roethlisberger.

Nonetheless, it appears that Rodgers will choose between playing for the Packers or the Broncos in 2022.

Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins are two in-house quarterback options for the Steelers. However, they have previously been linked to Mitchell Trubisky, a free agency and former starter for the Chicago Bears.

Not to mention that there are still trade alternatives open, with the San Francisco 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo being mentioned as a candidate for Pittsburgh. They also have the No. 20 overall pick in the NFL Draft, which they can use to select a promising quarterback prospect.

For the first time in over two decades, Pittsburgh must choose a new starting quarterback, and it appears that it will not be Aaron Rodgers.
