The Pittsburgh Steelers offseason might be off to another horrible start with more tales of drama dominating the headlines, but fans will be delighted to hear the team have at least found a fourth quarterback to act as the camp arm when offseason training gets underway in April.
While they may have lost Matthew Thomas to the Baltimore Ravens, it seems the Steelers were quick enough off the mark to acquire the services of quarterback Brogan Roback and wide Ka’Raun White for 2019.

Originally signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent, Roback would be cut at the end of training camp and fail to latch on with a team throughout his rookie season. As one of the Steelers pre-draft visitors last April, the coaching staff were clearly interested enough in what they saw to bring him back for an extended look this offseason. However, it is highly unlikely he will still be with the team come September unless it is as part of the practice squad.
White lasted just three days with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent before being released and claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals in May. Although he would last through training camp in Cincinnati, he would also fail to find a team during the regular season.
The younger brother of first round draft pick Kevin White of the Chicago Bears, Ka’Raun was an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick as a senior after recording 61 receptions for 1,004 yards and 12 touchdowns. He would end his career at West Virginia with 124 receptions for 1,852 yards and 17 touchdowns.
