1. Steelers could jumpstart a rebuild for the New York Giants

The New York Giants are one of those teams that continues to disappoint. While they nearly pulled off a game-winning drive against the Bills on Sunday Night Football, backup QB Tyrod Taylor came up just short in Week 6. Even if they would have found a way to win, this team isn't fooling anybody.

Daniel Jones isn't getting the job done in his fifth NFL season, and his offensive line is quite possibly the worst in the league. Knowing that they started off the 2023 season with a 1-5 record and knowing they have teams like the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys in their division, they can't expect to compete anytime soon.

Offensively, the Giants hardly have a notable asset worth trading for. They could take a flier on a former first-round pick like OT Evan Neal, but he's playing just as bad as Dan Moore Jr. and Chukwuma Okorafor have played for the Steelers this year.

For this reason, they could look to the defensive side of the ball for a potential trade. The Giants have a very strong defensive line. Though they may not be willing to part with a guy like Dexter Lawrence (who is easily one of the best in the business), maybe they would be willing to trade veteran Leonard Williams.

If the Steelers could pull this off, they could turn around and sign him to a contract extension, as Williams has a void year following the 2023 season. He could serve as a long-term replacement for Cameron Heyward and offer great depth along the interior defensive line in the meantime.
