These decisions are between my agent, Omar and the front office. So, this.. I’ll leave it up to these guys. I’m on this team now, and I’m going to do everything in my power to help the two guys prepare.”

Rudolph could not answer this question better or more professionally. It’s clear in his voice that he’s frustrated, but you have to give him credit for treating himself with the utmost respect for everyone involved.

“I am a competitor,” said Rudolph. Jerry Dulac From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. “Anyone who wants to compete wants to be the man on the field, but these are things I can’t control. I will have a good positive mindset, doing whatever I can to help us win.”

Rudolph had a solid training camp, and it was pre-season by all accounts. Crowned pre-season by leading the Steelers to come from behind to win over Detroit Lions in Acresor Stadium. In three games this season, he finished 26/39 for 220 yards pass with 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Rudolph had his thoughts on the pre-season competition.

“I think he’s kind of in the rearview mirror now,” Rudolph said. “I would have liked to have more first-team representatives, but decisions are being made. I am moving forward.

“Listen, I’m a much better player than I was from Year 1 to Year 5. I’m confident and happy with myself when I got the cast. I’m going to do whatever I’m going to do. Other than that, I think I’m going to keep some kind of portfolio.”

Rudolph improved during his time with the Steelers. There was not enough production when he steps into the field. While it was last minute notice, Rudolph got the start on his home turf against the Lions when Ben Roethlisberger He tested positive for COVID-19. The match resulted in a draw that could have cost the Steelers a chance in the playoffs last year. All the blame for the tie shouldn’t go to Rudolph with his late overtime swings Deontay JohnsonAnd the Pat Freermouth In the end the Steelers did. But Rudolph had the entire first four quarters to find the end zone more than once and couldn’t do that.

“I thought I played well,” Rudolph said of his pre-season performance. “I think I will have a chance to play in this league as a midfielder for a long time. I am confident of that. I wanted more first-team representatives, but anyone who is competitive will do that.

Rudolph is clearly annoyed by the amount of actors he’s constantly received on the subject.

“I think I improved a lot from throwing the ball last year, and understanding [Matt Canada’s] An insult where you feel more prepared than ever. You feel like, hey, I should have had more reps, but that’s not the hand I was dealt.”

At once, he thought Rudolph would benefit from the knowledge Canada died offense, but may hurt him in the long run. He may have received fewer delegates because he didn’t need to learn that. Ultimately decisions were already made when the team signed Trubisky, then drafted Beckett.

Now we’ll see if the Steelers will force the obviously miserable Rudolph to stay in Pittsburgh for the entire season.
