Steelers should place these players on the trade block before the 2022 season
By Andrew Falce
With training camp well underway, here are four players the Steelers should throw on their trade block.
The trade block is a weird concept in the NFL. While in no way an official document, teams make their interest in trading a player pretty open. While the Steelers don’t need to force any trades right now, based on some camp performances, there are a few names that would make sense to flip. Here are four Steelers that need to be put on the trade block.
Why Steelers could trade Montravius Adams
It hasn’t been the start to camp that Montravius Adams likely wanted. While he hasn’t been noted much in either a positive or negative light, there have been some defensive linemen absolutely shining early on. Adams hasn’t stuck out, and while he looked good at times last season, his roster spot is far from secure.
Carlos Davis looks more like the rookie that showed promise than the injury-riddled depth piece he was last season. Meanwhile, late offseason addition Doug Costin has been impressing with his reps. All of this said, and new defensive linemen Larry Ogunjobi hasn’t even had a chance to play as the team takes it slow with his return from injury.
Adams is still viewed as a versatile backup with a good shot at making the roster, but the competition is getting tougher. If the Steelers can fetch a late-round pick for him, they should. The depth along the line seems really strong, so turning some of those players into draft capital is a good idea.
