The Steelers are on their way back to Pittsburgh as they’ll soon be checking into the dorms at Saint Vincent College for the 51st edition of Steelers training camp in Latrobe.
Steelers season never really ends for Steeler Nation so while the Steelers 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 Wednesday, July 27th.
So you’re saying there’s a chance?
In today’s edition of “As the Le’Veon Bell World Turns” we see ESPN’s John Clayton discuss the legitimacy that Bell actually has a case to get his suspension overturned and not have to miss any games.
It seems as Bell’s claim that his phone number changed and therefore he wasn’t contacted correctly about the test can be easily verifiable. If he gave his new contact information to the proper channels and when can be easily proven.
It should also be easily proven whether or not the drug tester attempted to contact Bell on his correct line and when. Only hold up now is we don’t know when this appeal will be taking place.
Remember this part of the NFL policy on substance abuse and positive drug tests is supposed to be confidential. It’s collectively bargained between the league and players that only the suspensions when final after all appeals are made are announced. Somehow this stuff always gets leaked anyway. Wonder how?
The summer of Antonio Brown can’t be complete without a game of Madden against Verne Troyer, right?

Teresa Varley gives us a look at Steelers kicker Chris Boswell like we haven’t seen him before. Boswell will enter his first ever Steelers training camp this week and he tells Varley about how his life took a dramatic turn back when he was in training camp with the Houston Texans.
Boswell’s father suffered a workplace accident that resulted in a serious brain injury. He was in a medically induced coma for two weeks but has since recovered. Boswell talks about the toll it took on him to go through something like that while trying to focus on football.
Something had to give and he had to be with his family at that time more than he needed to be on a football field. It’s a great story worth reading and definitely gives fans the perspective on how Boswell is able to remain so calm and collected under pressure during games.
