The Pittsburgh Steelers have looked for a trade target at wide receiver and have even inquired about multiple names. But it will likely have to get ugly for someone to get pried loose. That could happen through a holdout, and the first step for that would be players missing mandatory minicamp, like 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is doing. However, Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton does not look to be following in those footsteps.

In an interview with DNVR in Denver, Sutton said that he plans to attend the Broncos’ mandatory minicamp next week, ending his holdout for a raise on his contract. Sutton still has two years left on the deal but wants a raise and guaranteed money. He said it was killing him not to be there and that he is watching Broncos tape from OTAs to familiarize himself with rookie quarterback Bo Nix.

Courtland Sutton figured that this would be the happy medium for the Steelers to get a deal done at a minimal cost that would not affect George Pickens’ future with the Steelers. The biggest fish in the pond is Aiyuk, who continues to look for a new deal from the 49ers. They had explored trading Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel, and while the plan seems to be having all of them in the room for one more season, it is still possible that the Steelers could be a team that could swoop in when things get ugly.

Pittsburgh is still looking for another wide receiver after trading veteran Diontae Johnson to the Carolina Panthers. They drafted Roman Wilson and signed Van Jefferson, Quez Watkins, and Scotty Miller to try and replace his production. However, the team has continued to look around the market in search of someone else who could help out the wide receiver room before the start of the season.
