Despite an 0-4 start to the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t ready to throw in the towel just yet. Through four weeks, the most glaring weakness with them is the play of the offensive line.

Today, the Arizona Cardinals and Steelers completed a trade that would send offensive tackle Levi Brown to the offensive line-needy Steelers in exchange for draft picks:




The Cardinals are coached by former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, so there is plenty of familiarity there between the Steelers and Cardinals’ offenses, which should help Brown eventually win a starting job in Pittsburgh, presumably over the enigmatic Mike Adams.

    You have got to be kidding? They need to be getting rid of high priced players and getting draft picks, not adding salary and losing picks? Just 1 more nail in the coffin. This shows how incompetant the Steelers front office is now. YOU are 0-4.
    You will have to win 10 of the last 12 games to make the playoffs. Not going to happen. Levi Brown is not going to make any difference in wins this year.
