Baker Mayfield Trade Location No. 2 – Pittsburgh Steelers
One of the teams who have appeared to be extremely interested (if Baker Mayfield was released), is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I’ll be honest, I have no idea why because I don’t remember a single game where he was fantastic vs. the Steelers. Even in the playoff throttling, Ben Roethlisberger threw what felt like 15 interceptions to set up the Browns offense.
Even though the Steelers haven’t been willing to trade for Mayfield yet, a few moves around the league could draw more interest. An injury at camp, a team trading up in the draft for a rookie quarterback, or many other scenarios.
If Mayfield and his agent could even get the Steelers to give away a seventh-round pick for him, Berry may pull the trigger even to a division rival. Mayfield would likely have to earn the starting spot over newly acquired Mitchell Trubisky, but the Steelers are starting fresh and would likely welcome the competition.
It breaks my heart to say it out loud, but the Steelers are likely one of the top-run franchises in all of sports. No matter what seems to happen, they always seem to find a way to beat the Browns at least once and squeak into the playoffs.
Things will certainly be different without Roethlisberger, but don’t count them out with that defense. As much as it kills me to say, Mayfield could find some success there, especially with Najee Harris coming on as one of the better running backs in the league.
