The Steelers should have a balance of buying and selling before the trade deadline.

The trade deadline is six days away, and there are multiple moves the Steelers can make as both a buyer and a seller.

In a perfect world, this is how the trade deadline could look for the Steelers.

Trade No. 1

  • Steelers receive: 2024 fifth-round pick
  • Giants receive: LT Dan Moore Jr.

The Giants offensive line has been plagued with injuries all season long. So much so that they signed Justin Pugh off the street and he was starting against the Bills that same week. Moore isn’t going to be the starter in 2024, and he is coming off his best game in a very long time against the Rams. His value will never be higher, so get something for him now.

Trade No. 2

  • Steelers receive: 2025 sixth-round pick
  • Bills receive: CB Levi Wallace

Levi Wallace has been one of the worst cover cornerbacks in football this season, and sometimes a change of scenery is what’s needed to help fix that- we’re seeing that with Ahkello Witherspoon in Los Angeles. For Wallace, going back to Buffalo to a familiar system could be the change he needs. Plus, the Bills lost Tre’Davious White for the season, and need help on the perimeter. A late-round pick in two drafts may not sound like much in return, but Wallace’s play hasn’t garnered anything more than that.

Trade No. 3

  • Titans receive: 2024 sixth-round pick
  • Steelers receive: S Terrell Edmunds

The Titans have started their fire sale, sending Kevin Byard to the Eagles for draft picks and Terrell Edmunds. With how the Steelers’ secondary has looked this season, brining back an unsung hero like Edmunds would do the defense a lot of good.

Trade No. 4

  • Panthers receive: 2024 fourth-round pick, 2024 seventh-round pick
  • Steelers receive: CB Donte Jackson

The Panthers are clearly a long ways away from being where they want to be, and they should look to get as much draft capital as they possibly can. Jackson is a good starting cornerback who would be an instant upgrade over what Pittsburgh has right now. Going into 2024 with a cornerback lineup of Joey Porter, Donte Jackson, Patrick Peterson, and Cory Trice would be a perfectly fine situation for the Steelers.
