The Steelers roster is one of the best in the league, but these low-cost trades could cement this team as a contender in 2020

While the Steelers have gotten off to a hot start in 2020 winning both of their games, there are still some issues that need to be fixed in order to further better the team. The defense has proven to be a strong unit, but some glaring weaknesses still leave a cause for concern. The offense has looked promising, but there are a few positions that could use an upgrade in order to make the unit more competitive.

Considering that 2020 will likely be the best chance for the Steelers to win the Super Bowl before the exodus of talent that will likely occur next year, trading for some talented players now could pay dividends further into the year. While these players would mostly be one-year rentals, stocking the shelves with as much top-level talent now will be critical in the Steelers having the best odds of taking home another Lombardi at the end of the year. Given that the Steelers also have a decent number of draft picks next year, they have some capital to use in order to add potential stars to this roster.

While the Steelers should remain competitive even without these additions, giving this roster more talent in such a critical year should go a long way in fielding a championship-caliber team. The Steelers are known for making moves like this right now, so if a deal were to occur, it would likely be sooner rather than later. All of this said, here are four trade options the Steelers should be targeting.
