Steelers sign Dobbs to a one-year contract

The Steelers re-signed quarterback Joshua Dobbs to a one-year contract.  

Dobbs was inactive for the first 15 games of the 2020 season, playing in the team's Week 17 game against the Cleveland Browns. Dobbs completed four of five passes for two yards. He also added two carries for 20 yards. 

Dobbs, who played at the University of Tennessee, was originally drafted by the Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

He saw his first NFL action on Nov. 11, 2018 on the road in Baltimore, when he came in for one play and completed his first NFL pass for 22 yards and a first down, getting the Steelers out of a hole when they were facing a 2nd-and-20 situation.

Dobbs played in five games in 2018 for the Steelers, completing six of 12 passes for 43 yards and an interception. He also had four rushing attempts for 11 yards.

The Steelers traded Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 9, 2019, after Week 1 of the season, but Dobbs was released by Jaguars when the team got down to their 53-man roster in 2020, and he was re-signed by the Steelers shortly after.
