Considering the Steelers will look to add to their roster after cutdown day, here are three potential Bengals cuts that could interest the Steelers.

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and for NFL teams, this is never truer than during roster cutdowns. Every team has to release nearly half of their offseason roster, and there is a scramble from the other 31 teams to add some of these players to their active roster. The Pittsburgh Steelers are no exception here, and in a year with so many questions on the roster, stealing a potential AFC North cut could yield dividends for the team.

I’ll be doing a short series on each team in the North to see who could aid the Steelers that are currently on their own respective roster bubbles. Adding a potential contributor from a rival team is even sweeter, as that player will have a chance to get some retribution twice a year. To conclude this short series, here are three Bengals on the roster bubble that should interest the Steelers.

Steelers should target Billy Price

While the Bengals didn’t add any blue trip prospects along their offensive line, they did bring in quite a few new names to add healthy depth and competition here. Naturally, this means that they will be forced to part ways with a few of these names. While not known for their stellar offensive line, some of these options should be kept in mind as potential backups for the Steelers.

The first of these names, and the one with the most pedigree, is Billy Price. The former first-round pick has been averaging to below-average so far with the Bengals. With the additions made to the interior of this line, the Bengals may opt to simply cut bait with Price. While he has shown few traits that indicate he should start, he could be a steady backup and be a spot starter with some experience at either guard spot or center. Considering Trai Turner’s extensive history with injuries, having a capable guard capable reserve is a must.
