Mason Rudolph claims Ben Roethlisberger has a lot of ‘leeway’

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph said Ben Roethlisberger has “leeway” on the team’s offense.

With Ben Roethlisberger retiring from the NFL, Mason Rudolph is the NFL’s de facto quarterback Pittsburgh Steelers‘Depth chart. He stepped in for the injured Roethlisberger in the 2019 season and has the most experience in that position.

During an appearance on “The Jim Rome Show,” Rudolph said he was looking forward to playing in offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s plan and mentioned that Roethlisberger had “leeway” on play calls.

With Roethlisberger having been with the team for 18 years, it’s not surprising that he has a say in how games are named. As Rudolph points out, Canada now has the opportunity to deploy its full offensive system.

In the clip above, Rudolph mentions that he’s gearing up for a quarterback fight in the 2022 season. The team has options. They can either sign a veteran free agent, trade for a quarterback on the block, or apply their first-round draft pick to one of the top prospects. In any case, Rudolph says he doesn’t shy away from competition.

Rudolph, a 2018 second-round pick, played in 17 games for the Steelers (10 starts). During his career, the quarterback has thrown for 2,366 yards, 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while completing 61.5 percent of his passes.

Of course, it’s not entirely a given that Rudolph would get the starting quarterback job in 2022. If he does, he will look forward to working with Canada. Mason Rudolph claims Ben Roethlisberger has a lot of ‘leeway’
