Mitch Trubisky In Talks With Bills

Wednesday, March 6, 6:32 PM

The Buffalo Bills and former quarterback Mitch Trubisky are in talks to reunite, according to a source. Trubisky was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason, so he's free to sign with any team before free agency officially starts next week. The 29-year-old former second overall pick by the Chicago Bears in 2017 out of North Carolina made five appearances for the Steelers last year, including two starts, and looked miserable, going 67-for-107 for 632 yards, four touchdowns and five touchdowns before the Steelers quickly went to Mason Rudolph for the rest of the year when Kenny Pickett was hurt. He played in Buffalo in 2021 and attempted just eight passes in parts of six games. If he returns to the Bills, he'd just be QB insurance behind starter Josh Allen.

Taylor Heinicke Accepts Pay Cut

Tuesday, April 2, 2:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Taylor Heinicke took a pay cut recently from an expected $5 million base salary in 2024 to $1.21 million, according to Roster Management System. His $1.32 million roster bonus, which was due just after the league year began last month, was instead classified as a signing bonus. His $40,000 per game active roster bonus was also removed from his contract. The reduction in his deal lowers Heinicke's salary cap number from $8.96 million to $4.53 million, including a cash value of $2.53 million. If Atlanta were to release him, he would cost $3.32 million in dead money with only a cap savings of $1.21 million. The 31-year-old got a chance to start in 2023 when Desmond Ridder was benched, but Heinicke did nothing to separate himself and also got hurt. He'll enter 2024 as the backup to starter Kirk Cousins.
