SI’s King Says Steelers Never Called Redskins About 16th Pick

Peter King of reports after writing the following:

Redskins owner Dan Snyder said on Sirius Radio over the weekend that the ‘Skins and Steelers had a deal in place for Washington to trade the 16th overall pick to Pittsburgh for the 31st pick plus other choices … but the Steelers didn’t do the deal when it came time to pull the trigger. Seems the player Pittsburgh wanted was gone by the time the 16th pick rolled around, he heard from Redskins general manager Bruce Allen who denied the original report and said the Steelers never called about the pick.

Calls have been made to the Steelers to get their side of the story too. King will update further when he hears something back.
