Rapoport mentions that the Steelers actually received a good amount of trade interest in Dobbs during the summer, but held out for the right kind of compensation and eventually got a fifth-round pick from the Jaguars.
Jacksonville plans to move forward with rookie Gardner Minshew as their starting quarterback, but they obviously had to add some depth with Foles out.
Dobbs, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2017. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.99 million contract and set to make base salaries of $645,000 and $735,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Dobbs appeared in five games for the Steelers and completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 43 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.
