JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Joshua Dobbs is probably most known for his time competing against the Florida Gators as the quarterback for the Tennessee Volunteers.
Now, the Jaguars will attempt to make new memories with Dobbs in the coming weeks. The Jaguars traded for the Steelers backup Monday, giving Pittsburgh a 2020 5th round pick in return for the rights to Dobbs.
Dobbs has thrown 12 career passes; he has one interception and zero touchdowns in his one season with the Steelers.
Dobbs, was originally drafted by Pittsburgh in the fourth round (135th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He didn't see action during his rookie season and played in five games in 2018. He completed 6 of 12 passes for 43 yards and added 11 rushing yards during last season’s campaign.
Dobbs attended Alpharetta (Georgia) High School and earned first-team all-state and first-team all-county honors.
He would then go on to play for the University of Tennessee, where he finished his career with a 23-12 record and tying for the fifth-most wins by a starting signal-caller in program history.
Dobbs' numbers while at Tennessee also includes 7,138 career passing yards alongside 53 touchdowns. However, his lack of experience in the NFL will have many questioning the move to hand over a 5th round pick to the Steelers.
