Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has been a hot topic of conversation outside of the team's QB battle.

While he's competing for a starting spot with Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett, rumours are swirling about a potential landing spot should he get out of Pittsburgh.

The latest team to be involved in the conversation is the Detroit Lions, who are reportedly interested in getting a deal done quickly with the Steelers

Rudolph, who expressed his displeasure with his practice reps, addressed the Lions news by staying away from hypotheticals.

"These are all scenarios that are out of my control," Rudolph said. "That's not what I'm focused on right now.

I'm focused on going down and putting the finishing touches on this week. Practice today, then the walk-through and then Jacksonville."

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed that seventh-round pick Chris Oladokun will begin practice next week.

Rudolph, Trubisky and Pickett have been the only quarterbacks to participate in team drills.
