Rudolph, Haskins eager to make bid for open Steelers' QB job

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mason Rudolph understands the baggage he carries. Dwayne Haskins too.

The next seven months give the two Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks a chance to shed the weight. For the first time in nearly a generation, the starting gig in the city they play for is up for grabs after Ben Roethlisberger all but confirmed he is retiring after 18 seasons.

And the two players who will get first crack at replacing the likely future Hall of Famer - one (Haskins) a 2019 first-round pick trying to recover from an embarrassing flameout, the other's (Rudolph) pro career to this point defined by a brawl that ended with him getting hit in the head with his own helmet - understand the stakes.
