There were rumors swirling that the Pittsburgh Steelers and other teams might be interested in Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin on Wednesday. But JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington shot down the trade rumors, saying that there is no truth to them.

“Zero truth to him being available,” the source told Finlay.

The Commanders are set to bring in a young quarterback and having a top target like Terry McLaurin is ideal for the development of that young player. In addition, he still has three years left on his contract, meaning that not only is McLaurin a huge asset for the team now, but into the future at just 28 years old and one of the top receivers and route runners in the league.

The Steelers have been connected to potential blockbuster trades at wide receiver, and Tuesday only intensified that. 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk sparked speculation on Tuesday when he sent a message to Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin on X, stating “@CoachTomlin they saying we twins. What you think?”

It was all started by Gerry Dulac on the Rich Eisen Show, who believed that the team could shoot higher than Mike Williams for the next receiver they add to the team.

“Or bigger is all I will tell you Rich and we shall see, but that is another step that they are going to make. Like I said, it might not even be Mike Williams, it might be a bigger catch if you will. No pun intended,” Dulac said.

Williams signed with the New York Jets. But it still seems likelier that the team looks to add via free agency and the NFL Draft. The Steelers have released veteran slot receiver Allen Robinson II and traded star outside receiver Diontae Johnson this month, leaving the team very needy at the wide receiver position, even after the club signed veteran Van Jefferson.
