Josh Dobbs has never been cut from a team in his life Orange Joe Thomas Jersey , no matter the sport. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback understands the streak is in jeopardy due to the indelicate politics that come with putting together an NFL roster.It's a reality Dobbs can live with if he has to. Then again, after throwing for a touchdown and running for another in a 39-24 preseason victory over Carolina on Thursday night, Dobbs made a compelling case to stick around — be it in Pittsburgh or elsewhere in the league."I don't really get too nervous," Dobbs said. "I don't really play that game. I know it's a stressful time. I'll just let it play itself out. That's all I can do. I know it's not really in my hands. I feel like I've played well. Played strong."Dobbs, fighting for one of the backup jobs behind Ben Roethlisberger, vaulted into the end zone for a 3-yard scoring run to cap Pittsburgh's first drive. He added a 27-yard strike to Tevin Jones later in the opening quarter and finished 8 of 12 for 151 yards to cap an impressive training camp."I think it's night and day from this season to last season," said Dobbs, a fourth-round pick in 2017. "Just in total command and understanding of the offense and then being able to go out and make plays on the field. Throughout the preseason, I was able to make plays when I was given my opportunity. It shows in my command Joe Thomas Jersey 2019 , I think it shows in my play and in how the offense was able to move up and down the field."It just might not be enough for Dobbs to stick around.Dobbs, veteran Landry Jones and rookie Mason Rudolph are all vying for a backup spot behind Ben Roethlisberger. Jones, who has played well while filling in for Roethlisberger over the last three seasons, is likely safe. So too is Rudolph, a third-round pick this spring who came on for Dobbs late in the first half on Thursday and threw for a pair of touchdowns of his own.The Steelers (3-1) could keep all four quarterbacks when rosters are trimmed to 53 on Saturday, then perhaps deal one of the backups — Dobbs being the best candidate — to add depth elsewhere.While Dobbs stressed he loves Pittsburgh, he insisted he's not going to lose sleep trying to figure out the various scenarios."You have to focus on the task at hand, focus on the process and focus on what you can control and just keep hitting the wall," Dobbs said. "It will break at some point."CAROLINA'S QUANDARYThe quarterback math isn't quite so complicated for the Panthers (3-1). Taylor Heincke and Garrett Gilbert have spent the last six weeks trying to gain some separation in the fight to back up Cam Newton.Heincke started the finale and moved the ball Orange Denzel Ward Jersey , going 7 of 12 for 68 yards and a 6-yard touchdown to Mose Frazier. Gilbert came on in the second quarter and was 4 of 7 for 23 yards. Rookie Kyle Allen played the entire second half, completing 25 of 35 passes for 250 yards and a score."I think there are some good things," Rivera said. "It's tough when you are not playing with everybody, but we know that going in, it was going to be tough. And we'll take a look at that and we will evaluate. We'll come to a conclusion in the next couple days."SWITZER DEBUTSPittsburgh wide receiver Ryan Switzer capped a frantic 72-hour stretch by returning one punt for 9 yards and averaging 21.5 yards on two kickoff returns. Switzer — acquired from Oakland on Monday to bolster the Steelers' return game — also saw a handful of snaps at receiver but was not targeted.INJURIESPanthers: RB Elijah Hood (lower body) was hurt on the opening kickoff and did not return.Steelers: S Malik Golden (knee) was carted off the field in the fourth quarter. Golden was also hurt in the 2017 preseason finale against Carolina. WR Damoun Patterson (turf toe), LB Keith Kelsey (pectoral) and LB Olasunkanmi Adeniyi (hamstring) also left with injuries.ANTHEMThere were no protests by players on either team during the national anthem.UP NEXTPanthers: Welcome Dallas to Bank of America Stadium for the season opener on Sept. 9.Steelers: Open at Cleveland for the second straight season when they visit the Browns on Sept. 9. The Cleveland Browns are hosting free agent receiver Rishard Matthews for a workout on Monday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.Matthews asked for and received his release from the Tennessee Titans on September 27, which was just over a month after signing a contract extension through the 2019 season. The extension reportedly included a $7.75 million team option following this year but included no guaranteed money, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.He was set to make $5 million this season.Matthews grabbed 118 receptions with 1 Denzel Ward Jersey 2019 ,740 yards and 13 touchdowns over the last two seasons while working as Marcus Mariota’s preferred pass-catching option not named Delanie Walker.Heading into 2018, Matthews had health question marks after suffering what was believed to be a torn meniscus. He missed the Titans’ offseason program and all of training camp before being activated from the physically unable to perform list just before the season’s start.The Browns have been looking for proven receiver depth before and after trading away Josh Gordon. Rumors have persisted about their intent to sign free agent Dez Bryant, but nothing has progressed on that front since his training camp visit.Signing Matthews makes a lot of sense given the Browns’ frustration with their inexperienced receiving corps. Rookie Antonio Callaway has shown glimpses but has been wildly inconsistent and unreliable through his first four NFL appearances.Given he was on the mend entering this season, and he’d be learning a new offense, there’s a chance it would take a few weeks for him to be able to contribute. Even then he might not get back to 100 percent this season, but he’s certainly worth an evaluation.If they like what they see the Browns should give him an offer before he leaves Berea. Matthews is also scheduled to visit the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday.
