The Steelers have some holes to fill at different positions and adding to the roster via trade might be their best option. 

The Steelers seem to be an unfinished product now as they get closer to the regular season. The pre-season process is in full swing as we are just a couple of weeks away from training camp starting in Latrobe. The team should be active both on the free agency front and looking into potential trade deals.

There is some cap space for Pittsburgh to work with, but it seems like they might want to hang onto draft picks right now. The future of this club is important as the franchise is in a limbo state. No one is certain if they will rebound quickly or struggle for a little before rebuilding into a contender.

Looking into the trade market would still be a good idea if it can help your team now. They have too many holes to fill for them to ignore all their faults across the Steelers current roster build. Getting a player or two via trade should be an option for this team.

Offensive tackle is still a need for the Steelers

Offensive tackle is one of the major areas of concern for the Steelers that has not gotten much attention. The two starting jobs are cemented right now with Dan Moore Jr. and Chuks Okorafor on the opposite ends of the line. The depth behind them is scarce and should worry the coaching staff for this team.

The front office needs to get to work and see what kind of players are available out on the trade market. Tytus Howard is rumored to be available, and he would be a good option but the price to acquire him might be too rich. Getting a veteran with starting experience into the building to give better depth than Joe Haeg might be one of the most important on this list.
