Considering the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to add to their roster after cutdown day, here are three potential Ravens 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. Here is a look at three players on the Raven’s roster bubble that should interest the Steelers.

Steelers should target Harris

The Steelers are progressively figuring out their cornerback room, but the number of questions there means adding another body is a smart move. The Ravens have a slew of talented defensive backs on their roster, meaning that some quality reserve ones will likely be released when the team cuts their roster down. Of the likely names to be cut, Davontae Harris makes the most sense given the multiple hats he can wear for a team.

He played in 11 total games last year (between the Ravens and the Broncos) and had some solid film while patrolling the Ravens’ secondary. On the 13 pass plays he was targeted, he only gave up a quarterback rating of 63.3. He can chip in on special teams as well. The biggest problem with him is that he has only been an outside corner so far. That said, quality depth is quality depth, and the Steelers should circle his name if he gets cut due to the number of corners in Baltimore right now.
