He'll now be exposed to waivers, allowing any other team to claim him.

The career of quarterback Devlin "Duck" Hodges has flown into a window.

Hodges played in place of Mason Rudolph previous year, who had replaced Ben Roethlisberger.

Former Tennessee Vols quarterback Josh Dobbs, who played at UT from 2013-2016, was the victim of final 53-man roster cuts this week.

Mason Rudolph is still on the roster and will likely serve as the primary backup to Ben Roethlisberger, which means Dobbs should return to a familiar role as the Steelers' No. 3 quarterback. If unclaimed, he can sign with any team's practice squad.

In the Steelers' fifth game of the season, Rudolph suffered a concussion, sending Hodges on the field for his National Football League debut, and he made his first start the next week.

Stars and Stripes: Trump orders famed USA military newspaper to shut
There is increasing concern that Trump is politicizing America's military, which is meant to be apolitical, ahead of the election. News of the shutdown also took social media by storm, with many blaming President Trump for the move and criticizing the reasons.

The Jaguars traded for Dobbs last season, but he did not see the field after going to North Florida.

Heyward, 31, was named first-team All Pro for the second time last season when he had nine sacks, 21 quarterback hits, six passes defended, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery as one of the featured pieces of a defense that led the National Football League in takeaways and sacks.

Hodges took 376 snaps for the Steelers in 2019.

Dobbs is 6-for-12 with 43 yards in his career.
