5 Seahawks players Steelers must trade for after Wilson deal
By Andrew Falce
Steelers should trade for Carson
One of the Steelers’ most underrated needs this offseason, finding a capable backup running back to spell Najee Harris should be a priority for this team. While Harris did a good job as a runner in 2022, he likely won’t be able to maintain his current pace as a runner given the fact that he had 381 touches as a rookie.
Chris Carson just so happens to be an extremely talented and versatile back for the Seahawks, and it would make a lot of sense for the Steelers to look to acquire him. He resigned on a two-year deal last offseason, and while he was effective when on the field, injuries hampered him overall. It seems likely a rebuilding Seahawks team looks to move him.
While a trade wouldn’t be monumental, the Seahawks could potentially land a day-three pick for the veteran and as a result, open up some cap space for their roster. The Steelers, on the other hand, get a capable reserve that can help take some of the pressure off of Harris. It seems unlikely that Carson sticks with the Seahawks at this point and Pittsburgh seems like a logical landing spot for him.
