Steelers offseason mini camp schedule

Now that the NFL draft is over for this year and the teams have had their first rookie mini camp, the rest of the offseason workout schedules are released. These workouts are voluntary but I would expect to see the a sizable chunk of the Steelers veterans attending these sessions, as per normal. Players workout on their own before and after these mini camps but having as many together as possible to start building the foundation for the new season is very important.

Roethlisberger will have a chance to work with his receivers and tight ends (well most of them since Mike Wallace still doesn’t plan to show up at this point. The offensive line especially will benefit from these camps as the two new draftees, David DeCastro and Mike Adams will get their first taste of working out with the group. The competition at cornerback will begin to take shape as Curtis Brown, Keenan Lewis, and Cortez Allen all make their bid to play opposite Ike Taylor. Can Stevenson Sylvester start to make his bid to overtake Larry Foote on the inside opposite Lawrence Timmons? All these scenarios and more will begin to take shape and unfold in the coming months.

NFL teams didn’t have available last year due to the lockout so it’s nice to see another part of the NFL getting back to normal in the offseason.

Plus these workouts are great for getting information on how players are doing, what positions are being played by whom, who’s got the inside track to start heading into training camp, etc.

Below is the Steelers schedule and the rest of the AFC North for those that are curious. This list is courtesy of ESPN
