The salary cap hasn't been kind to the Pittsburgh Steelers this season. The team has already had to restructure contracts and cut players to make space for the upcoming season. However, that doesn't exactly fix their cap issues beyond 2021.

The Steelers took a step towards addressing their 2022 salary cap when they declined safety Terrell Edmunds' fifth-year option earlier this month. Edmunds suited up in 15 games last season, finishing with 68 total tackles, 8 passes defended, 2 interceptions and a sack.

Pittsburgh could end up trading Edmunds this offseason to at least get some sort of return for him rather than letting him walk away for nothing in free agency.

If that's the case, here's a look at three of the most likely trade destinations for Edmunds.

Terrell Edmunds Rumors

3. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts could use some depth at the safety position after letting Malik Hooker hit free agency. Edmunds would be a pretty good replacement as he's not only talented but fits in with the Colts' youthful core. The 24-year-old safety recorded a 70.9 overall ProFootbalFocus grade, so he's worth the look if Indianapolis doesn't attempt to bring Hooker back.

2. Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens were another team that needed a safety before the 2021 NFL Draft began. Even though they didn't end up drafting one, they did sign undrafted free-agent safety Ar'Darius Washington. Still, you can't expect an undrafted safety to stop some of the NFL's best offensive threats right away, so it might be wise for the Ravens to trade for Edmunds. At the very worst, he'll be a one-year option until they find someone else, assuming he doesn't work out.

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The safety position was one of the Philadelphia Eagles' needs ahead of the draft. While they selected LSU's JaCoby Stevens, that wasn't until the sixth round and there's no guarantee that he'll be ready for NFL action right off the bat. That's why the Eagles should take a swing at trading for Edmunds. Philadelphia was already decent at defending the pass last season, surrendering just 237.4 passing yards per game (14th). Nevertheless, Edmunds might be able to help them take things to the next level.
