With organized training activities set to begin tomorrow, the question pending is which members of the Pittsburgh Steelers will attend?
Back in April, the Steelers released a statement showing their intention not to partake in voluntary in-person activities. Despite improvements in COVID-19 protocols and vaccinations, the team was collectively in agreement with a virtual offseason.
As we saw with this year's minicamp, one can assume the possibility of both drafted and undrafted rookies attending this year's sessions, as none of them tested positive during the three days of activities. Yet, the idea of keeping their first round pick Najee Harris safe for instance, may supersede the need for having him on the field during this period.
For certain, Steelers defense captain and NFLPA representative Cameron Heyward is one such player that will not be in attendance. In the upcoming days, it will interesting to see if any of the veteran or second-year players will make some type of appearance in any of the OTAs sessions.
