Steelers Bolster Quarterback Depth Chart with Signing of Kyle Allen, Addition of Defensive End Dean Lowry

Kyle Allen and Dean Lowry signed by Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have recently made several moves to solidify their quarterback depth chart. After signing Russell Wilson as their backup and trading for Justin Fields, the team has now acquired their third-string quarterback. General Manager Omar Khan confirmed that the Steelers have signed Kyle Allen, a 28-year-old who has been in the NFL since 2018.

Kyle Allen entered the league as an undrafted rookie with the Carolina Panthers and has since spent time with Washington, Houston, and Buffalo. Most notably, he started 12 games for the Panthers in 2019, showing enough potential to remain on NFL rosters as a backup quarterback. With this addition, the Steelers now have three quarterbacks on their roster and are considering adding a fourth camp arm in the future.

In addition to signing Kyle Allen, the Steelers have also added defensive end Dean Lowry to their roster. Lowry previously played for the Minnesota Vikings, appearing in nine games with four starts last season. With these recent acquisitions, the Steelers are looking to bolster their roster and add depth to key positions as they prepare for the upcoming season.
