The Pittsburgh Steelers are going through a bit of a problem right now.
The team has struggled to gain any sort of offensive momentum this season, and firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada hasn’t solved anything yet.
Granted, losing Kenny Pickett hasn’t allowed the team to get a glimpse of what he could give them with a different play-caller leading the way, but that’s a discussion for another day.
The situation has gone so badly that some are even questioning whether head coach Mike Tomlin should continue his tenure with the team next season.
With that in mind, Yahoo’s Charles Robinson and NBC Sports’ Michael Smith believe Tomlin isn’t the one who should be on his way out of the team (via NBC Sports on YouTube).
Instead, they made a case for the team exploring the trade market for George Pickens.
Per Smith, reports about his behavior and work ethic haven’t been good at all thus far, going as far as to say that he’s “a problem.”
Truth be told, Pickens has done a lot of talking this season, and while he did ball out during a stretch, it doesn’t seem like such a young player should be making everything about him the way he’s done it.
Pickens, like every young player trying to make a name for himself, should be working hard to try and help their team win football games.
As talented as he is, Tomlin and the Steelers have a long history of problematic wide receivers, so we wouldn’t blame them if they decided to part ways with the second-year professional.
