Pittsburgh Steelers end OTAs, prepare for mandatory mini-camp
The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their OTA sessions today and are now focused on next week’s mandatory mini-camp. For some players like rookies David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Alameda Ta’amu, this will be the first time since the rookie-camp for these potential starters. Yes, they have had their playbooks, but there is no way to build chemistry with teammates without being around to learn the system together. While these three rookies will make their debut of sorts at mini-camp, fans should still not expect to see wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has still not signed his RFA tender. Of course, next week is a big week on that front, as the Steelers could potentially reduce his tender to the league minimum, which would cost Wallace roughly $ 2.2 million. Will they do that? No, they won’t do that, as they are reportedly in long-term contract discussions with Wallace and that really is not the Steeler-Way, but it will remain a possibility if this drags into the regular season.
