Russell Wilson trade destination No. 3: Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers seem to be in somewhat similar territory as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are tasked with replacing a multi-time Super Bowl winning-quarterback and have one of the most well-respected coaches in the business.
The main difference in Pittsburgh is the fact that their quarterback-in-waiting does have some experience. The Steelers may be willing to roll the dice with Mason Rudolph, 26, to be their starter going in to next season.
But, if Mike Tomlin doesn’t want to waste any of 2021 NFL Defensive Player of the Year TJ Watt’s prime years, he’ll find a way to revitalize the post-Ben Roethlisberger offense.
A way to fast-track that is to bring in Russell Wilson from Seattle to lead this offense that is loaded with potential.
You have to imagine Wilson would love to be paired with one of the best young offenses in the NFL. The three main weapons on the Steelers’ offense are all 25 years old or younger.
Running back Najee Harris, a great runner and pass catcher, was named to the Pro Bowl after a phenomenal rookie season.
Wide receiver Chase Claypool can pick up yards in chunks and wide receiver Diontae Johnson has improved every season in receiving yards and touchdowns.
If Russell Wilson has his way, he would be wise to tell Pittsburgh to come get him to compete for the black and yellow and continue his career with a proven Super Bowl-winning coach and franchise.
