The Steelers are officially on summer vacation as the offseason workout program wrapped up and they won’t come back together until reporting to training camp later next month.
Steelers season never really ends for Steeler nation so while the Steelers players get their minds and bodies right to embark on the 2016 regular season we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, June 20th.
Have a good summer
The Steelers Junior Reporter Xiah Zepeda was all kinds of adorable in interviewing several Steelers players to figure out what their plans were for their time off between now and the start of training camp at the end of July.

Seems like the secondary will be training together down in Florida while linebacker
will be headed out to Arizona to train right up until reporting to camp.
It’s highly likely that Harrison is looking at another training camp where he’ll be hanging out on the sidelines to be preserved for the season.
The standard is two points
This just in: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is a trailblazer. Last offseason when the NFL changed the rules of the PAT attempt to entice more teams to try two-point conversions and “try to make the game safer” there wasn’t any team who attempted more conversions than the Steelers.
Michael Davis Smith of PFT explains why going for two could and should be the norm going forward in the NFL. The reasons to try more two point conversions are pretty obvious. When more teams are doing it and more teams are anticipating it, however, it will get tougher and less enticing probably.
So strike when the iron and the two points are hot.
The eye of the tiger
Mark Kaboly of the Trib give us a little known tidbit about Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons. He bikes to work every day while the Steelers are working at the UPMC Rooney Complex on the South Side. He lives in the area and prefers taking the bike.
He finds it enjoyable and that’s rather adorable. I’d like to see the entire linebacker corps on one of those multi-seat bicycles. Make it happen Timmons.
