Dobbs is currently a member of the Minnesota Vikings. After becoming well-known while playing college football for the Tennessee Volunteers, Dobbs was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Rivals.com rated Dobbs as a four-star recruit and said he was the third-best quarterback prospect in the country. Dobbs guided the Volunteers to a bowl game and won the 2015 SEC Offensive Player of the Year award.
After Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson, Dobbs was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, making him the third quarterback overall. He was Ben Roethlisberger’s backup for three seasons while he was with the Steelers. After being traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019, Dobbs filled in as Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew’s backup quarterback for two seasons.
Dobbs signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns in 2022, but he was cut before the season began. He then signed a contract with the Tennessee Titans in 2023, where he started out as the backup quarterback for the group. He was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in October 2023, but the Cardinals cut him before the 2023 season could officially begin.
