It’s looking like a long shot that the Steelers will trade for Brandon Aiyuk

DJ Chark, Odell Beckham Jr. and soon, Tyler Boyd. Serviceable wide receivers are flying off the free agency board one by one as the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to have one of the NFL’s weakest corps. What does Omar Khan have up his sleeve?

The Steelers GM claims there’s nothing imminent, which, if true, is a serious concern. All we can do is trust that as we speculate until our faces turn blue.

Rumors of a trade with the San Fransisco 49ers for star WR  Brandon Aiyuk have been swirling for what seems like forever. GM John Lynch has stood by his message that there are no plans to get rid of him or Deebo Samuel.

Outside the Steelers brass, no one knows for sure what’s really going on with their wide receiver situation.

Aiyuk remaining with San Fransisco takes the lead at -300 (75%).
