Cornerback Malcolm Butler might have the capacity to help give the Steelers' optional a lift

The Steelers are for the most part awful at drafting cornerbacks and far and away more terrible at exchanging for them Steelers tickets.

Possibly they could attempt the offer-sheet course.

Possibly they could step way abnormal and truly mix the pot by hurling an offer sheet at New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler (if he isn't exchanged to New Orleans when I compose the following passage).

Yes, that would basically be an exchange — the Steelers would need to surrender their first-round pick — yet we should be severely real to life here: The crevice between the Steelers and the Patriots just enlarged Thursday when New England marked Stephon Gilmore to a huge free-specialist bargain. That gave the Patriots two shutdown-bore corners. The Steelers have none, which is an issue against Tom Brady.

Simply ahead and chuckle at the thought. I'll reveal to you what's genuinely funny: Brady's 22 touchdowns and zero block attempts against Mike Tomlin-guided groups.

Something emotional requirements to occur for the Steelers to close the crevice. Marking a mid-level corner wouldn't do it. Trusting Senquez Golson recuperates or Ross Cockrell returns likely won't complete it either, and kindly don't converse with me about more new kids on the block arranging against Brady in the AFC title diversion, where you simply know he'll be come January (New England has been to six of those in succession).
