Update (5:34 PM): Pittsburgh is trading a 2022 6th round pick for Schobert, according to Ian Rapoport. That will leave the team without a 4th, 5th, or 6th round pick in next year’s draft, though they’re projected to get a 3rd and at least one 5th round compensatory selection.
Our original story is below.
Final details aren’t yet known but the Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly sending a “late round pick” as part of the Joe Schobert deal, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
It is likely a sixth or seventh round pick in 2022. The Steelers don’t have a fourth round pick, traded away in the Isaiahh Loudermilk deal, nor a fifth rounder, given up last season to acquire Avery Williamson from the Jets. So unless it’s a 2023 pick, it’ll be sixth or seventh round selection being flipped to Jacksonville.
Reportedly, the Jags will also retain a portion of Schobert’s salary, though details aren’t official there either.
He will start next to Devin Bush, bumping Robert Spillane from his presumed starting spot. Schobert signed a five-year, $53 million deal with the Jags last offseason. But with a new regime under head coach Urban Meyer, the Jags are cleaning house, trading Schobert and reportedly putting first-round corner C.J. Henderson on the trade block.
The trade is likely to become official this afternoon once Schobert passes his Steelers’ physical. Compensation and terms of the deal should be known by then.
