Steelers Receive Advice That They Should Enter The Jonathan Allen Trade Market

The Pittsburgh Steelers have orchestrated an impressive offseason, sparking excitement among fans as the new season approaches. Following a well-received draft, where pundits lauded their selections, the team finds itself in a strong position. While cornerback and wide receiver slots remain areas of interest for potential roster enhancement, another crucial position has emerged as a consideration.

Some voices within the football community advocate for the Steelers to proactively plan for the succession of Cam Heyward. Among the proposed strategies is the pursuit of Washington Commanders defensive tackle, Jonathan Allen.

Justin Melo of The Draft Network identified three teams, including the Steelers, that could benefit from acquiring Allen through trade. His thesis is that the Steelers need to plan for the future with an aging Heyward.

“Cameron Heyward has been the league’s most consistently dominant defensive tackle over the previous decade. He’s entering his age 35 season in 2024, and the final year of his contract. The Steelers should start thinking about a succession plan.”

Heyward has undeniably been a standout performer for the Steelers throughout his illustrious career. However, as he approaches the twilight of his time on the field, the team must strategize for the future.

Allen emerges as an ideal candidate to fill Heyward’s shoes, offering a seamless transition and a continued high level of performance. Melo’s endorsement of trading for Allen this season further bolsters the potential viability of such a move.
