Will Dissly

Fans may not want to acknowledge it, but the Steelers have an obvious TE issue. Even after adding Eric Ebron, the TE room has been a major disappointment this year. The run blocking has been subpar, and the contributions to the passing offense have been little. Worse yet, Vance McDonald has all but disappeared from the offense, further the need to add more talent to this roster.

The Steelers should make a call to the Seahawks and see how available Will Dissly is. Dissly was thrust into a starting role last year before he was injured, and he performed well. While not a dynamic athlete, he has great hands coupled in with the physicality necessary to make contested catches in the red zone. On top of all of this, he is an adequate blocker, further adding to his overall value.

On top of all of this, Dissly will still have one more year on his deal, meaning he can still be rostered next year. Given the uncertain nature of this group going into next year, having a cheap and talented TE on the roster will give the unit stability. This year, Dissly and Ebron would likely split the season as starters. Next year, the Steelers could move on from Ebron and still have Dissly as a starting option. Assuming his price is a day three draft pick, Dissly would make a lot of sense for the Steelers to trade for.
