Some early observations by Mike Prisuta, WDVE's sports reporter. Biggest thing: Former WR Eli Rodgers is in town for a visit.

Check out Mike Prisuta (@DVEMike): https://twitter.com/DVEMike?s=09

Update: Eli Rodgers is saying he is happy to be back in the Black and Gold. Cam Heyward is also welcoming him back. I assume he is signed.

NFL Network reported that the team is coming in with a much more serious attitude compared with last year. Supposedly, "more disciplined." That's until AB arrives in a helicopter.

Helicopter is nice, but showing up in Stone Cold Steve Austin gear with championship belt in hand was even better.

I hope these guys see the window is not going to stay open too much longer. Ben is not a spring chicken anymore. We have a huge ? at DB. and ILB is also up for grabs. This should be our year to separate so we get home field in the playoffs. Here it comes: PLAYOFFS,PLAYOFFS, you wanna talk about PLAYOFFS

Mason the that 3rd round draft pick might make you forget about Ben?

If anyone thinks, players included, that they played anywhere near a top 5 defense last season? I'd say a lot of players were hanging around Snoop this off season.

Maybe they mean top 5 in their division.

The D was solid for the 10 games, minus the Jacksonville debacle. Even in the Chicago loss, the stat line wasn't bad. We gave up a lot of rushing yards, but little to no passing.

Looking at the NFL stats, they weren't allowing more than ~250-300 yards passing and ~50-90 yards running. After week 11, the wheels completely came off. This was before Shazier got hurt too.

Look at the NFL.com recap links in the link:

It would be interesting to speculate what happened against the Packers that seemed to follow them the rest of the season.

First new wrinkle revealed in Fichtner's offense

Tight ends lining up in the slot are nothing new to the NFL, but it’s an alignment seldom shown by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Is this about to change? Multiple tweeters who attended Thursday’s first practice of camp report that such could be the case.

In particular, Vance McDonald worked from the slot on multiple plays and was even isolated once away from the line.

Yeah reading through camp notes it seems like I keep hearing Washington's name. It's been mentioned that he has a fantastic catch radius, and an excellent ability to catch the ball in traffic. I concur with Kaboly, I think Washington is going to contribute this year. I think he might even be an upgrade over Bryant. Seems to check all the boxes, can catch in traffic, has good hands, decent speed, and he's a very hard worker. Excited to see how he progresses this season.

Little Bell would be holding out for an extra cookie.

Good! He better be, we used a 1st Round Pick on a guy that most projected in the 2nd or 3rd Round. I hope he turns out to be a beast!

i don't know, just doesn't make me feel confident about Butler. I thought proper tackling was the one basic fundamental skill a defender had to know. Why are they taking about this now? How can you be a steeler defender (or a steeler defense as a whole) and not be able to tackle properly? I know this was an issue even before Shazier got hurt.
