After the Steelers agreed to a trade for Joe Schobert Thursday night, the team’s compensation in the trade has not yet been fully revealed, but it won’t be a player going to Jacksonville, despite wide receiver James Washington reportedly requesting a trade.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Steelers will only be giving late-round compensation for the former Pro Bowl inside linebacker.

The concrete details of that compensation are not yet revealed. However, only giving up late-around compensation should be considered a huge win for the Steelers, even with Schobert’s $7 million contract.
Head coach Mike Tomlin declined to discuss potential details of the trade on Thursday.
