Kenny Pickett’s stunning wife – Amy – has taken to social media to react to the QB’s big trade to the Philadelphia Eagles, as originally reported on Friday.

Amy and her QB hubby, who got married last year, are moving to ‘The City that Loves you Back’ after Pickett, 25, was traded for a 2024 third-round pick (No. 98) and two 2025 seventh rounders.

The Eagles will receive a fourth-round pick (No. 120) in this year’s draft in addition to Pickett.

Hailing from Ocean Township, New Jersey, Pickett grew up as an Eagles fan, and will now fulfill a childhood dream by backing up Jalen Hurts.

His departure from Pittsburgh, where he played in college for five seasons before being drafted as a first-round pick by the city’s pro NFL team in 2022, comes after the Steelers signed free agent QB Russell Wilson and traded for ex-Bears QB Justin Fields, this past week.

The Steelers’ original plan for Pickett was to keep him around for training camp to compare him to Wilson, 35, for the role of QB1, according to ESPN, which further revealed: ‘Internally, Wilson was viewed more as the starting quarterback.’

But, the report added that Pickett ‘preferred’ to seek pasture new after learning that he wouldn’t be relied upon as much as he was this past season in 2024-25.

Pickett went 14-10 as a starter but struggled to stay healthy and be a difference maker for an offense that languished near the bottom of the league. He completed 62.0 percent of his passes in 2023 for 2,070 yards and six touchdowns with four interceptions.

Pickett was first thrust into the Steelers’ starting job at halftime of a Week 4 loss to the New York Jets during the 2022 season. He didn’t put up eye-popping numbers but showed a knack for putting together late rallies, including wins over Baltimore and Oakland late in the 2022 season that offered a glimpse of what Pittsburgh thought he could become.

It never happened. The Steelers were sluggish much of the year and decided to fire offensive coordinator Matt Canada just before Thanksgiving. Pickett looked solid in a promising win over Cincinnati under interim offensive coordiantor Eddie Faulkner and QBs coach/playcaller Mike Sullivan. Yet Pickett had his ankle landed on while scrambling the next week against Arizona and underwent surgery.

By the time the ankle had healed, the Steelers had caught fire under Rudolph and Pickett spent the final two weeks as Rudolph’s backup.

The spotlight won’t be nearly as bright for Pickett in Philadelphia, which already has an established starter in Hurts.
