The Pittsburgh Steelers have a situation at quarterback, but they seem to be ready to deal with it.
Sirius XM radio host Ross Tucker tweeted out the Steelers need to trade for New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Steelers should trade for Fitzpatrick ASAP. Can't go with Landry Jones for 4-6 weeks. Win-win for everyone.

Jones’ regular season numbers for the Steelers have not been good. He has gone 32 of 55 for 513 yards, 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions, and in the 5 passes he threw against the Bengals in a playoff game he managed to throw an interception.
If nothing else, Fitzpatrick has proved he can be a competent NFL quarterback. He was very good last season leading the Jets to a 10-6 record.
However, it would cost the Steelers to make a move like that. Jones does know the offense, and both running backs, Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams are healthy. They have a lot of other holes, so it sounds like staying the course is the only logical move.
