The Pittsburgh Steelers lost again on Sunday, dropping to 2-6 on the season.
The outlook for the rest of the season is bleak, and it might be time for the Steelers to sell some players.
One name that keeps popping up in trade talks is wide receiver, Chase Claypool.
It seems Claypool is frustrated by the lack of success the team is having.
Especially on the offensive side of the ball.

Pittsburgh has so many problems on offense, there is no way they can fix it all this season.
Their offensive line is bad, and rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett is taking it on the chin every week.
While Pickett has shown flashes, his inexperience is going to cause him to struggle all year.
Claypool has had a down season, recording only 28 receptions for 266 yards and one touchdown.
But, he did throw for one touchdown in the Week 8 loss.

There are plenty of teams around the league that could use some help at wide receiver.
The Green Bay Packers are the first team that comes to mind.
Aaron Rodgers could use another weapon, and Claypool would be an upgrade for them.
The former second-round pick is a big-bodies receiver that can help make plays downfield.
It has also been reported that the Minnesota Vikings have shown some interest in Claypool.
Pittsburgh reported has a high asking price. Two former Steelers QBs said they should not trade him which were Big Ben Roethlisberger and Charlie Batch #HereWeGo

It remains to be seen if the Steelers will trade him before the deadline.
But, it would be wise for them to do so.
With the emergence of George Pickens, Claypool is expendable in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers’ front office should be looking to load up on picks and start looking toward 2023.
