Happy Tuesday Steelers’ Fans. Ya it’s Tuesday but it’s a day closer to Training Camp.
Lot of talk about Le’Veon Bell over the last 10 days or so. Most of it relates to his pending contract negotiation. Based on everything I see and comprehend, I think the Steelers will offer around nine million. Although Adrian Peterson is up around $14 million, nine would still out Bell near the top. With his injury history I wouldn’t walk away from the offer.
Just a reminder that the Steelers will wear the bumblebees against the New York Jets this year.
Our players have posted some rather dumb stuff on social media before but the Browns’ Isaiah Crowell took the cake recently. He posted a sketch of a police officer having his throat slashed. Football player or common citizen, it was uncalled for in my opinion.
Thanks to Ron from Pittsburgh Sports Daily for hosting a number of Pittsburgh bloggers this past Sunday. While we are all competitors, we can also help each other too. I did far more listening than talking which was good for all involved.
Here was our Training Camp Primer from yesterday. Five goals Mike Tomlin has heading into Camp.
Tweet of the Day… The Seahawks trolled the Steelers from last season’s game, Sooooooo…..

Charlie Casserly said the Steelers’ biggest weakness is pass defense. I love this time of year where everyone is searching for something profound. This does not fall into that category.
Good stuff from Louis Lipps at steelers.com on training camp.
We’ll be starting our Training Camp Battle Reports this week!
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
