We are now less than a week until the NFL Trade Deadline comes around on Halloween before dinner time. The Steelers currently hold a 4-2 record right now, and they seem to be content with trying to hang onto relevancy. Even though their club has shown plenty of issues throughout the first seven weeks of competition, they have been able to win more than lose.

Omar Khan and Mike Tomlin need to figure out the next steps to getting this team to the playoffs, and hopefully beyond. It will take a lot of fixes on the current roster, but there are potential options on the trade market right now that could interest the black and gold. Khan should be on the lookout for some cheap quality additions to the team before the deadline passes.

David Andrews could be an upgrade at center that could be on the market

One team that is hurting currently is the New England Patriots. They are coming off an upset win over the Bills this past week, but they still have a lot of issues to consider themselves playoff contenders. With a record of 2-5, it seems like the Patriots could be looking to make some sales on their current roster. Keep an eye on them as quiet sellers as the trade deadline approaches.

One name that would make sense to move and someone who could upgrade the Steelers offensive line is David Andrews. He has been one of the best centers in the NFL for a while now and would be an immediate upgrade over Mason Cole at center. He can help anchor the offensive line and get the Steelers front group into a better position.

Cole is a free agent after this season, and he has not done too well this year. He is coming off his best game against the Rams, but he has not been reliable yet. Andrews would be an upgrade and is under contract for the 2024 season too. Trying to make the cap situation for this trade work could get tricky, but adding Andrews would be a great get for Pittsburgh.
