Steelers Six From Around The Web – Tuesday July 27th – Will Big Ben Speak On Friday Edition
ESPN North blogger James Walker reported on Monday that linebacker LaMarr Woodley would not be holding out this training camp. I am not sure why this was treated as breaking news around Steeler Nation as Woodley has said along he would report on time. Nearly every interview he has stated that. To me, this is a little media sensationalism trying to stir things up one last time before camp. It\’s not news, people.
Washington Observer writer Dale Lolley suggest that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ease the burden on his teammates on Friday or Saturday and address the media questions surrounding his tumultuous offseason early in camp.
Former Steelers running back Chuck Sanders said Monday that his charity is giving $100,000 to an employment fund supporting the Pittsburgh anti-gang program. Good to see Sanders in the midst of his life\’s work. Chuck Noll must be proud!

PPG columnist Ron Cook writes that he thinks there is no one better than head coach Mike Tomlin to deal with the upcoming season of challenges.
In their second pre season training camp “Agree to Disagree” segment on Steelers.com, Bob Labriola and Mike Prisuta preview the Steelers defensive positions and competitions for the upcoming training camp in Latrobe.
Kaye Cowher was laid to rest on Monday at a private funeral service in Raleigh, North Carolina. Among those in attendance were Steelers President Art Rooney II and Kevin Colbert, director of football operations. Pittsburgh sports fans also lost another legend on Monday as John Barbero, the public address announcer for Penguins, died at 65 of complications from a brain tumor. He will be forever remembered.
