Bleacher Report Ranks The Steelers Offense Near The Bottom

Despite all the changes the Pittsburgh Steelers have made to their offense, one analyst from Bleacher Report has the unit ranked near the bottom of the NFL.

In Bleacher Report's latest offensive rankings post-NFL Draft, writer Alex Ballentine has the Steelers listed at No. 26. Though Ballentine acknowledges the upgrades made at quarterback with Russell Wilson and Justin Wilson, as well as the upgrades the team made at multiple spots on the offensive line through the draft, he believes their receiving room is still a question, despite drafting Roman Wilson.

"The Steelers could use another receiver to make the rest of the room better. George Pickens is the team's top receiver. Getting aggressive to trade for a target who becomes available like Deebo Samuel or Chris Godwin could be the missing piece."

It has already been well documented that the team was interested in acquiring Samuel during this year's draft. The team was also linked to his teammate Brandon Aiyuk for much of the offseason, yet the team was unable to broker a deal for either one of them.

Godwin, on the other hand, presents a new avenue in which general manager Omar Khan could try venturing. Godwin signed a three-year deal with the Tampa Buccaneers in 2022, which runs until 2025. What should be noted is that the contract came with an annual salary of $20 million, which the team may not be able to fit under their cap. 

Godwin's production consistency makes him a desirable option. Since 2021, he has registered at least 80 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards. His size and ability to make plays on the outside make him the type of player who could complement George Pickens.
