It’s fantasy, for real

The Steelers opened their 13th annual Men’s Fantasy Camp this weekend in Latrobe and the 250 participants were treated to drills, tips and instruction from former Steelers players like Jeff Hartings, Tunch Illkin, Josh Miller, Antwaan Randle El, Aaron Smith, Mike Tomczak, Deshea Townsend and Craig Woofley.

As Teresa Varley point out, the group of guys was also treated to a “team meeting” conducted by Outside linebackers coach Joey Porter.

"“It’s fun because it’s Steelers Nation. You have guys out there who love football period. They embrace us and everything we do. I am happy to see them, and hopefully they were happy to see me. Some are going to use what I share with them, and some are fans who just want to see if they can play football one more time. That is fun. You have guys who just love the game, and then ones who will use it to help their kids get better. It’s fun, it’s a good experience, and hopefully they had as much fun as I did.” – Joey Porter"

The event was topped off with a discussion led by none other than former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August as a member of the Class of 2015.

The two-ring group is small

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reminds us that on the Steelers roster there are only four players who remain from the last Super Bowl Champion teams (2005, 2008). Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, Greg Warren and James Harrison are the only players walking around with two Super Bowl rings. The youth movement has officially arrived in Pittsburgh.

At this point the Steelers roster is at about 90 players, eleven of whom are 30 or older. The team has about 28 players older than the age of 25 which means that no one will be calling this group, ‘Old, slow and done.’ How many of these young guys stay on the roster past the cuts remains to be seen.

All signed up

The Steelers have officially signed their entire 2015 Draft Class as they announced yesterday they’ve signed their seventh-round pick, safety Gerod Holliman to a four-year deal.
