Steelers trade Dobbs to Jaguars

The Steelers traded quarterback Joshua Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday afternoon. The Steelers will receive the Jaguars fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft in exchange for Dobbs.

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

He saw his first NFL action on Nov. 11 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 was currently the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph.

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