The Steelers are all checked in and accounted for at Saint Vincent College and 2016 training camp is officially underway for the 51st year in Latrobe.
While the Steelers get the pads on and get preparations started 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, Aug. 2nd.

The Steelers put the pads on for the first time in camp on Sunday and showcased a fan-favorite drill where the running backs go up against the linebackers. According to Mike Prisuta linebacker Ryan Shazier dominated the day.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin declared “5-0 looks like the man today” as Shazier won battles against

. I didn’t know the Steelers had that many running backs on the roster. Apparently none of them were a match for 5-0.
He’s got jokes
The team that jokes together hopefully wins together. During Sunday’s training camp practice, defensive end Cameron Heyward decided that it was a good plan to install the camp’s first running joke.
He declared that it would be DeAngelo Williams’ birthday and the crowd can sing to him and everything.
Only problem is that Williams’ birthday is in April and he’s not the biggest fan of being reminded that he’s on the other side of 30. Welp. Petty is as petty does. Happy Birthday DeAngelo! Looking good for 35!
Back to camp
Former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor returned back to camp to visit with his former team. Taylor spent some moments with Ben Roethlisberger and coach Tomlin that will give you all of the feels. He also runs into James Harrison who says that he just turned 32 (why everyone lying about their age?).
Taylor runs into Antonio Brown to confirm that business is, indeed, booming and notes how his Rolls Royce is parked in the parking lot because business is so booming for AB that that’s his everyday car. A Rolls Royce.
