Quarterback Josh Dobbs was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend, but was quickly scooped up by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who originally drafted Dobbs in 2017. It seems like a great fit, given that Dobbs returns to a team with which he spent the first two and a half seasons of his career and reunites with some of his old teammates.
Things might be a little awkward with one of them, though. In the time since Dobbs was traded to Jacksonville during the 2019 season, both he and fellow quarterback Mason Rudolph have been involved in some capacity with The Bachelor contestant Hannah Ann Sluss.
In February, Dobbs and Sluss went to a Tennessee Vols basketball game together and were then spotted at several spots around Knoxville well into the night. The two never confirmed they were dating, but there was certainly something going on for some period of time between the two East Tennessee icons.
Then a few months later, Hannah Ann was spotted out with Rudolph and liked an Instagram comment describing him as the "upgrade of the century", referring to Sluss's brief fiancée Peter Weber. Sluss later went on Kaitlyn Bristowe's Off the Vine podcast and said she was involved in "a nice little quarantine fling."
I live for this stuff. I would kill to know how long it takes one of Dobbs or Rudolph to bring it up, what they say about it, all of it. I'm sure in actuality it's really not a big deal, but what a story it would be if The Bachelor caused a rift in a NFL quarterbacks room.
All I know is that Hannah Ann should have been with Dobbs. Those two could have been elected co-governors of Tennessee if they wanted to. The possibilities would have been endless.
