Maybe it was already planned and maybe it wasn\’t, but Steelers beat writer Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting via Twitter that the Steelers held an organization-wide meeting on training camp today at the practice facility. Brown notes this as a positive sign and perhaps Art Rooney II has let them know that a new labor deal could be within reach soon. One can only hope though and the Rooney speculation is on my part.
Prior to the lockout, the Steelers were scheduled to open up training camp at St. Vincent College in Latrobe in late July and college officials told WTAE earlier this week that the fields and the dorms are all ready for camp to open. Should camp indeed take place this year in Latrobe, it will be the 46th year that the Steelers have held it there.
