Report: Former Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs traded to new NFL team
Former Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs has a new NFL home, per multiple reports.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have traded Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars in return for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick. Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles suffered a fractured clavicle in Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. A fractured collar bone usually costs players about eight weeks.
Former Washington State quarterback Gardner Minshew replaced Foles Sunday; however, Jacksonville is now adding more depth following the trade with the Steelers. Dobbs will have a chance to compete with Minshew for the starting job.
In three career NFL seasons, Dobbs has thrown for just 43 yards and no touchdowns backing up Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers drafted Dobbs in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
In four career years at Tennessee, Dobbs threw for over 7,000 yards and 53 touchdowns while rushing for over 2,000 yards and 32 touchdowns.
