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 Thursday, July 21st.
With the start of Steelers training camp right around the corner the anticipation to catch cornerback Senquez Golson in action grows. Golson sat out his entire rookie season with a torn labrum and looks to be a part of the reconstructed Steelers defense.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reminds us how the Steelers have used even of their eight top two draft picks on the defensive side of the ball since 2013 and while players like Jarvis Jones haven’t entirely worked out there is still hope for the majority of them to make positive contributions.

Fowler explains that based on Golson’s SEC tape from his college days at Ole Miss, the 5’9” corner plays much bigger than his size and thrives off of one-on-one matchups with bigger receivers. Well what are you waiting for man? Get in there already!
I’m glad they got problems
Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams doesn’t have any problems speaking his mind. He also doesn’t have any problems with the problems of other teams, including the New England Patriots. When asked about the four-game suspension of Tom Brady Williams replied with a beautifully petty reply.
"“I am glad they got problems. I don’t care. Everybody has their problems, and I am glad they have theirs.” – DeAngelo Williams"
Williams was hosting a local football camp at Robert Morris University this week teaching about 300 kids, ages 7-13 about safe football drills. He also called into the 93.7 The Fan Morning Show on Wednesday to explain how the Bengals just try to emulate the Steelers because they want to be just like us.
Clearly they’re not doing a good enough job of it since they can’t get that whole win a playoff game down and their chili is wretched. I’m sure they’re working on it though.
Can’t stop won’t stop
The Steelers set a record last season by scoring eight two-point conversions and they’re aiming to blow that record out of the water this year. Ben Roethlisberger already voiced his desires of wanting to go for two after every score and on Wednesday morning coach Mike Tomlin joined ESPN’s Mike & Mike show to echo that sentiment.
"“Our comfort with pursuing it is steeped in our preparation – it’s part of our practice plan. Having Ben at the quarterback position increased our level of comfort.” – Mike Tomlin"
We don’t live in our fears, do we? Let’s break that 8-of-11 record and see how many two point conversions one team can score in a season.
