The enemies over at Behind The Steel Curtain asked their readers which Kansas City Chiefs player they would take right now and put on the Pittsburgh Steelers. We ask you, the Chiefs fans, the same thing.
Which Steelers player would you sign to the Chiefs right now?
If I could just pick one ... it would come down to a few options.
QB Ben Roethlisberger is a two-time Super Bowl winner. He has a strong arm and is big enough to stand in the pocket and deal with an offensive line that has its, ahem, issues. The Chiefs don't really utilize their receivers as much as other teams so adding someone like Roethlisberger would open up significantly more of the offense. This would be my choice if we could actually make this happen. I do like Alex Smith but Roethlisberger would bring an element of the offense that Smith does not bring right now.
WR Antonio Brown is a beast. He has 115 catches and almost 1,500 yards already this season. Chiefs receivers have combined for 110 receptions and 1,370 yards this year. I mean, that's just incredible. Receiver will be a priority in March during free agency and again during April for the draft so Brown is an obvious consideration. He is riiiiight behind Big Ben on my list.
The final consideration for me would be C Maurkice Pouncey. He was good enough to merit a $44 million extension. He can play center and guard. He's just a beast of a lineman, something the Chiefs really don't have right now. I like Rodney Hudson but Pouncey is the better play over the long term (ignoring the hefty price tag).
I asked this question on Twitter and got a bunch of different responses. So let me ask you ... Which Steelers player would you take today?
