The last offseason the Steelers and Ravens traded with one another was back in 1997—that is, until now. The bitter AFC North rivals struck a deal, with the Ravens sending defensive lineman Chris Wormley and a 2021 seventh-round pick to Pittsburg in return for the Steelers’ 2021 fifth-round pick, according to the NFL Network.

Since free agency began, Baltimore has traded for Pro Bowl defensive end Calais Campbell, signed former Rams defensive tackle Michael Brockers, and re-signed defensive tackle Justin Eliis and defensive end Jihad Ward.

Wormley had become expendable despite having played all 16 games last year, sacking the QB 1.5 times with 10 pressures and 33 total tackles. The Ravens won the AFC North last season, beating the Steelers in both 2019 meetings, and finishing 14–2.

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was in the 2014 Wild Card Game, when the Ravens beat their hated rival in their first-ever playoff game.
