The Steelers already have a very respectable roster. Here’s why their team would be the best in the league if they added one player from each AFC North team.

Despite one of the league’s worst offenses in 2019, the Steelers still managed to win eight games last year. Pittsburgh’s defense was a treat to watch, as they finished top six in yards allowed, points allowed, yards per play, and takeaways.

Pittsburgh boasted two Defensive Player of the Year candidates a season ago in T.J. Watt in Minkah Fitzpatrick while being the only team in the league with three first-team All-Pro representatives on the defensive side of the ball.

The offseason is always a great time to play out some rather unrealistic scenarios. What would the Steelers team look like if they could add one player from each AFC North rival?

While your selections may seem like no-brainers at first, there is a lot of thought that would go into this. For this scenario, I will be looking for some players who will not only help the team win right now but will be around for the long haul. I also factored in the value of the position. On top of this, I factored in money and current contract situations.

With these three division rival players added to the Steelers, there is no question that they would be Super Bowl contenders and one of the best teams in the NFL for years to come.

Here are the players I would steal from each AFC North team:
