The Steelers next opponent Buffalo Bills could be in the market for a wide receiver.

The Bills have three healthy WRs currently, Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and Khalil Shakir.

Davis played but has been dealing with an ankle sprain so he isn’t 100 percent.

The Bills lost Isaiah McKenzie (concussion protocol) and Jamison Crowder (broken ankle) in their come from behind win against the Ravens. Jake Kumerow has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain as well.

While the Bills will likely activate some players off their practice squad, they could be looking a wide receiver on the trade market.

There has been talk of them trying to sign free agent Odell Beckham Jr., who is still unsigned as he continues to recover from an ACL tear in last year’s Super Bowl.

Beckham may not be ready until November and could re-sign with the Los Angeles Rams.

So what about Chase Claypool? That’s a name Bills pregame and halftime show host Nate Geary on brother Station WGR in Buffalo brought up on Twitter.

“I wonder what it would take to pry Chase Claypool from the Steelers after they drop to 1-4 next week,” Geary said assuming the Steelers will fall to the Bills.

“He’d cost less than $1M against the4 cap this season and just $2M (ish) next season. What would he reasonably cost?” added Geary.

Claypool missed a 50/50 ball in the second half against the Jets on Sunday, giving now-starting quarterback Kenny Pickett one of three interceptions on the day.

But at 6-foot-4-inches, Claypool gives Pickett a big target, and even said after the loss Sunday, he isn’t afraid to keep going to Claypool.

Pickett might want to start doing that, through four game, Claypool has 11 catches for79 yards and zero touchdowns.

Including that interception, Claypool has one other target and no catches.

If the Steelers would be willing to move Claypool, it would then become a question of what the Bills are willing to give up.
