Report: Steelers – Redskins had trade planned

According to reports, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins had a 1st round trade planned.  The Steelers were interested in trading to the #16 pick fr0m pick #31.  It is not yet known who the Steelers were targeting but the trade fell through when their targeted player was no longer available.

Per Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, Dan Snyder, appearing on Sirius Radio this past week, said that Washington and Pittsburgh had a deal in place for the No. 16 overall pick, but "the player was gone."

Earlier in the first round Dan Snyder and the Redskins traded from the #10 pick to the #16 pick to allow for the Jacksonville Jaguars to draft Blain Gabbert.  With that being said, it's likely the Steelers targeted player was drafted between picks #11 and #15.  The most likely pick was the #15 pick when the Miami Dolphins drafted Mike Pouncey from the Florida Gators.  However, it could have been JJ Watt.

It was well documented before the draft that the Steelers were interested in drafting Maurkice Pouncey's twin brother Mike.  What were the trade details?  And would the Steelers draft up that high for a guard?  Those questions are still unknown.  There is more details to follow on this story...

Dolphins or Chargers

Who would you rather face?

If the Miami Dolphins beat the Baltimore Ravens (Sunday @ 1pm est.)  then the Steelers automatically are matched against the Dolphins.  However, if the Baltimore Ravens beat the Dolphins then the Steelers will be matched up against the Chargers.

Both teams boast a strong 1-2 punch in their running attack.  Both are efficient through the air.  And both have defenses that are capable of making a push deeper in the playoffs.  Oh, and Miami has ex-Steelers Joey Porter who would love to punish his old team by wrecking havoc against Ben Roethlisberger by creating sacks and causing turnovers.  Oh, and did I mention that Joey Porter (19 sacks) will be matched up against inadequate Max Starks at left tackle?

Some very intriguing matchups.  Discuss in our Forum
