The Steelers are on summer vacation as the offseason workout program wrapped up and they won’t come back together until reporting to training camp in just a couple of weeks.
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 Tuesday, July 19th.
Crazy in a good way
The one rookie that’s going to get a lot of attention this training camp will be rookie linebacker Travis Feeney out of the University of Washington. Teresa Varley resumes her series of letting fans get to know the newer players a lot better through a series of questions.

Feeney’s most proud of the moment when he realized he was drafted and his love of the game drives him on the field. He also noted how popular with fans he became on social media after he was drafted. Not like we’re stalking him or anything.
"“Steelers fans are crazy, but crazy in a good way. They’re excited, they’re pumped up and they love their team. They’d do anything for their team. The fans seem crazy just from them tweeting me and stuff like that. They’re nuts, they are wild about their team. I went from 500 to 3,000 followers instantly.” – Travis Feeney"

Getting back to work
The Steelers will get back to work in just a little over a week and ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler explains just how much work there is to do on the Steelers offense. There’s nothing a few reps won’t cure but thanks to the arrival of the youngest Roethlisberger early this summer the usual trip to Ben Roethlisberger’s Georgia lake house for the receivers was nixed this year.
The Steelers offense will likely take the first week or two of camp for Roethlisberger to find his rhythm with his offense. No worries about him and Antonio Brown getting on the same page as those two seem to be psychically linked. But Sammie Coates, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Ladarius Green all need reps.
