The NFL trade deadline is approaching (November 3), and as competitive teams scramble to add the last piece to the list, some actions will be taken. Historically, the Steelers are not a team that participates in player sports in the season. However, due to some injuries and poor performance, the Steelers may play a role in several moves. Today, I compiled a list of rumored players that the Steelers might be interested in NFL “insiders.” We will provide the effective level of the rumors, as well as the costs required to make this move effective. let’s start!
Pat McAfee retired in 2016. Despite his relatively short tenure in the NFL, McAfee still needs the NFL’s 10-year championship. The Pittsburgh native, who is still only 33 years old, has repeatedly heard his name come back. The most notable is the 2018 Bears kicker who joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this offseason. Although the comeback contract has never been realized, it may be possible to play for your hometown team, and the chance to win the Super Bowl legend is enough to attract.
Rumor validity period: 2/10
Mark Madden is not the most reliable source, but there are rumors that the Steelers are looking for another punter. Use the returned Jordan Berry as a fill-in player. It’s also worth noting that about two minutes after the Steelers announced the release of Dustin Colquitt, McAfee posted a video of his own boom in his backyard.
On the other hand, McAfee is enjoying his life as a very successful podcast, WWE wrestler, college game day analyst, etc. If the Steelers want to coax Pat to retire, they may have to ask Pat to do something like this.
Another punter with the same name as the Steelers is a Marquette King. This is a rumor caused by fans, because King is a very popular name among Steelers twitter/reddit followers.
The validity of the rumors: 5/10
In the NFL, tango dance requires two people, and Marquette King (Marquette King) responded to the love the Steelers sent far more than that. In contrast to Pat McAfee, King is eager to return to the NFL and is interested in joining Black and Gold.
Robert Spillane was dazzled as the starting line guard for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He proposed an effort worthy of becoming a starter for this team for the rest of the year. That being said, when Spillane was injured against the Tennessee Giants, I held my breath. This team can no longer take other injuries for this position. They also don’t need to trade anyone to become a starter. Enter Avery Williamson, he is very suitable in almost every aspect.
After Devin Bush was injured, the Steelers could assess the trade market. Jets may seek to terminate the contract, and Avery Williamson (Avery Williamson, capped at $4.75 million) will stop sales in 2021.

The validity of the rumors: 7/0
This move is almost meaningless. It’s almost hard to understand why it hasn’t been made yet. If the Steelers want to conduct any form of publicity, this is the transaction they must complete. If the Steelers are to acquire Williamson this week, his salary cap will only be $1,718,750, and his contract will expire at the end of the season (perfect for the returning Devin Bush), He has been one of the only highlights of the Jets defense. Basically, everyone will be bad for the Jets, and the Steelers may be able to snatch Williamson under the conquest of a seventh-round pick.
Denzel Perryman is very similar to Avery Williamson. The two main differences are that Perryman’s remaining salary shooting percentage is much smaller, but in a team it is unlikely to give up his players in the big sale.
The validity of the rumors: 3/10
When everything else is lined up, I just can’t see the charger move Perryman inside the AFC for no reason. Los Anglos has a good young team and will still have value among players like Perryman. That being said, if they can’t do something for Williamson, this should be their next call.
There is no reliable connection between the following players, but because the “footballers” wanted this to happen, their names were eliminated along with the Steelers. But basically it certainly won’t happen.
JJ Watt -The story of owning three Watt brothers in Pittsburgh is an interesting topic. However, the feasibility of this move makes no sense. The Steelers are already among the top four in football, and the department has made a lot of money. If the Texans are going to move on from the first three defensive players of the year, I will pay more attention to teams like Seattle, but they must solicit funds. The oldest Watt brother seems destined to spend another terrible season in Houston.
Dwayne Haskins -This will not die. First, ESPN’s Bill Billwell put forward this idea in an article, then Andrew Fillipponi shared this idea on his platform, and finally, media like All American Sports declared that the deal was a smart move for the deadline . Of course, Haskins may be in trouble, but the Steelers will not add anyone to his quarterback room. They will not pay for players like Haskins.
These are all the names currently used in the “Steelman” direction. Whether any of them insists, no one knows…but! For more rumors, updates and reports, stay tuned to BTSC. The one-stop shop for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
