Happy Monday Steelers’ Fans. I’m assuming many of you are also Penguins’ fans so I’ll just skip right past that part…
Believe it or not, the Pittsburgh Steelers are already through phases one and two of their offseason program and begin the third and final phase today. The Steelers are allowed 10 “OTAs” and the first one begins tomorrow. Two more sessions will follow tomorrow’s later this week. All of this leads up to the mandatory three-day mini-camp which runs June 13-16.
The Sporting News revealed a list of the 40 Most Hated NFL Players of All-Time and the Steelers landed three guys on the list. Hines Ward, James Harrison and Ben Roethlisberger were all “selected.” It’s not surprising that any of of the three are on the list because it’s yet another illustration of just how little people actually know about players and the game.
ICYMI… The Steelers signed second round pick Sean Davis to a four-year deal last week. Rookie contracts are not nearly as difficult as they once were to negotiate but it’s still nice when they get done.
Training Camp dates have been announced!
Tweet of the Day…. The Steelers Across the Border.

Good article by Mark Kaboly of the Trib on the Steelers lack of contract re-structures this offseason.
