Football is finally coming back this week! Three NFL teams will open up their training camp early starting on Wednesday. The Cowboys will open up training camp on Wednesday, the Steelers will open up their training camp on Thursday, and the Buccaneers will open up their training camp on Sunday.
Both the Steelers and Cowboys are playing in the Hall of Fame game on August 5th which allows both teams to open up their training camps much earlier than other NFL teams. The Cowboys will be on HBO's Hard Knocks this season so it should be interesting to see if the Steelers will make an appearance on the show too.
Many of Yinz think the Steelers training camp will open up on July 28th. That is not true. The first public practice for the Steelers during training camp will be conducted at Heinz Field starting July 28th. The Steelers will start working at UPMC Sports Complex this Thursday, but those practices will be closed to the public. Expect Steelers news to pick up in a major way starting Thursday and we can't wait to bring Yinz all of the news! Thank god the long NFL offseason is starting to come to a close!! Here We Go!
