    All Steelers expected at minicamp, for a change

    All Steelers expected at minicamp, for a change


    Posted by Darin Gantt on June 11, 2019, 6:03 AM EDT (PFT)



    When the Steelers open minicamp today, a strange thing will be happening.

    They won’t be talking about who’s not there.

    Via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, all the Steelers are expected to be on the field (https://triblive.com/sports/steelers-finally-could-have-perfect-attendance-for-minicamp/) today, which is a departure from the past.

    Running back Le'Veon Bell (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8390/leveon-bell) skipped the last two years of minicamp before getting his freedom and joining the Jets. Antonio Brown (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5698/antonio-brown) skipped most of the voluntary work last year, but showed for minicamp.

    But with those two no longer occupying all the oxygen, things have been peaceful. The only player not under contract is cornerback Mike Hilton (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/11676/mike-hilton), who hasn’t signed his exclusive rights tender yet. But he’s shown up throughout the offseason.

    Veteran guard David DeCastro (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7412/david-decastro) was the only player to miss OTAs, after his wife gave birth to their second child, but he is expected today.
    Which means the Steelers can focus on football. For a change.

    Coach Mike Tomlin said he's more concerned with playing fast than positional chemistry at this point in the offseason. That chemistry will ramp up during training camp.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.
