Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp Attendees Battle to Be Rostered
Stop in at Shults Ford Wexford any time of day, and we’ll probably be discussing two things: Fords and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Our Black and Gold team’s 2017-2018 season is right around the corner. The end of July marked the start of the Pittsburgh Steelers training camp, a time when players get back into the swing of things. But more importantly, training camps are a time for the 53-man roster to be decided upon for the season.
Of course, the Steelers’ coaches are thinking ahead as much as possible, so many of the roster’s positions are already filled. But there are some Steelers players who coaches might be on the fence about. One such player is wide receiver Cobi Hamilton. Hamilton stepped in at the end of the 2016 season just when the Steelers needed him the most, and performed well catching 17 passes on 28 targets. However, the Steelers already have four wide receivers ready to go, so whether or not Hamilton makes it will depend on how irresistible his performance is at training camp. The same sort of question is up in the air for running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and wide receiver Demarcus Ayers. These are just three of huge pool of talented players that the Steelers have to choose from. Only time and training camp will tell who will make the final cut for the 2017-2018 season.
