Odell Beckham Jr to the Pittsburgh Steelers? That's one move ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky would like to see in free agency. During an appearance on the ESPN show Get Up, Orlovsky detailed why the Steelers should pursue Beckham.
“I look at the AFC. I say you gotta add firepower, or people to slow down firepower because of the Chiefs. This automatically does that for Pittsburgh. One, organizational structure and the head coach knows what he's doing. There's a standard, a culture, an everyday expectation he's gonna walk right into. Two, cheap quarterback with Kenny Pickett right now, you're trying to build around that because he is cheap and you're trying to get him to play as well as possible.”
The Steelers, who ranked just 26th in points per game in 2022, could certainly use added firepower in their offense.
And with Pickett, the Steelers' 2022 first round pick, still on a rookie deal, now is the time for the Steelers to splurge a bit and put some talent around him.
Beckham, a three-time Pro Bowler, certainly fits the bill in terms of talent.
Orlovsky's next comments likely made Steelers fans very excited.
The ESPN analyst imagined a Steelers offense with Najee Harris, Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Beckham and tight end Pat Freiermuth.
Beckham has been linked to the New York Giants, the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots, among others.
There's been no mention of any interest from the Steelers.
After what Orlovsky said though, maybe there should be.
