The Steelers, frankly on offense, might use his dedication, might use his maturity, might use his expertise and will use his accuracy. … He does not flip over the ball that a lot, he can play inside a system and do some ad-libbing additionally. When Russell went to Denver, he was seen as a savior. That is not what he’s right here. Pittsburgh’s successful with Kenny Pickett. They do not want a savior.”
