The Pittsburgh Steelers are more than likely going to be one of the most active teams in free agency. Here are three perfect scenarios that could unfold this offseason.

A lot of Steelers fans are excited for this offseason because of the cap space availability and the possible outcomes at quarterback next season. There are a lot of routes the Pittsburgh Steelers could take, but there are 3 perfect scenarios that would benefit this organization for years to come.

These are things that fans should want to see take place this offseason.

Malik Willis falls to 20th in the draft

Quarterback draft prospect, Malik Willis has been turning heads at the combine so far. This might not bode well for the Pittsburgh Steelers if they are interested in taking him in this year’s draft because there are plenty of teams ahead of them looking for a quarterback for next season.

It would, however, be a perfect scenario for them if he does happen to fall to the 20th pick. The franchise is in a rebuild mode at the quarterback position and Willis is a guy to build this organization around.

With the modern game turning into a pro-dual threat quarterback league, Willis should be a no-brainer if he happens to fall to the Steelers. Willis finished the season with a 61.1% completion percentage accounting for 27 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. He also ran for 13 touchdowns which gave him a total of 40 touchdowns last season. He is a dynamic quarterback that could sit and learn under the likes of a veteran quarterback like Mitchell Trubisky for the 2022 season.
