Here’s an excerpt from my TribLive.com column:
Trading their first-round pick for 2020 to get safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in ‘19 was questionable then, perhaps more so now.
Fitzpatrick has made first-team All-Pro twice since joining the Steelers, but that hasn’t got them a playoff win.
A trade isn’t just about how good the player acquired turns out to be. First and foremost, a trade’s success hinges on helping your team achieve better results.
If the Steelers don’t trade for Fitzpatrick, Justin Herbert might be their quarterback. That scenario isn’t far-fetched.
