Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk joined the show. Mike said the Steelers will force Kenny Pickett to earn the starting spot from Mitch Trubisky because the players want a proven player in that spot. Mike views Trubisky as an underrated player who has the shot until he blows it or gets injured. Mike said Pickett got a good review following his first preseason game even though his raw skills aren’t off the charts. Mike expects Mason Rudolph to be on the Steelers roster by week one, unless the team finds a trade partner – he won’t get cut. He said the Lions make sense for Rudolph because he doesn’t think much of Jared Goff. The guys asked when we will finally hear more of the Deshaun Watson case and when a resolution will be made. His best guess is 12 games and a fine around, but under, $5 million. He said the NFL wants “double digits” in terms of games. He thinks the Browns would almost prefer a full season if he got 12 games because they could kick his contract down the road for an extra season. Mike got into the Roquan Smith situation and what we could see happen with the inside linebacker that has requested a trade. The guys asked Mike about the Steelers young offense and said it wouldn’t surprise him if the Steelers traded Chase Claypool by this year’s deadline.
