I'm sure he'll end up in Cleveland some time before the end of training camp

I think he is done in the NFL. Could not beat out Chargers UDFA for the #3 job last year. Some LSU homers thought he was going to take over the #2 spot here. smh

Steelers cut Zach Mettenberger after drafting Dobbs

By Marc Sessler
Around the NFL Writer
Published: May 1, 2017

The writing was on the wall for Zach Mettenberger as soon as the Steelers grabbed another quarterback in the draft.

After selecting Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs in the fourth round this past weekend, Pittsburgh on Monday released Mettenberger, the fourth-year passer who has now been cut by three NFL teams.

The Steelers claimed the former LSU star off waivers from the Chargers in 2016. Mettenberger failed to log a regular-season snap with Pittsburgh and hasn't played in a game since making 14 starts for the Titans from 2014 to 2015.

Tennessee, at one stage, saw Mettenberger as a potential quarterback of the future, but the question now is whether he'll ever have another chance to start at the pro level.

Quarterbacks have nine lives in the NFL, but few young passers have seen their stock tumble as rapidly as Mettenberger, who is no sure bet to make a roster next season.

Mettenberger was claimed off waivers last August. do you think they saw enough of him being on the roster all of last season to know that he isn't worth having on the roster?

Mettenberger competed against Kellen Clemens and Mike Bercovici last year in Chargers camp and lost. If he cant beat Mike Bercovici, he cant beat Uncle Rico.

To be fair though, Uncle Rico can throw the ball clear over that mountain.
