Steelers Phase 1 of OTA’s Begins!

Although it feels like football is still light years away, Phase 1 of Steelers OTA’s session began on Monday April 16, 2018.

Players like Vince Williams, T.J. Watt, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Hilton, Roosevelt Nix, and Chris Boswell were some of the few Steelers players who attended the first day of OTA’s.

Phase 1 of OTA’s is not mandatory, which means fans should not expect Le’Veon Bell to show up. Phase 1 is a two-week period that will focus only on limited strength, conditioning, and physical rehabilitation.

On Tuesday Juju Smith-Schuster and Joe Haden arrived to Pittsburgh for their first OTA’s with the Steelers and even announced it on their social media’s. Juju and Haden are not the only players to have their first OTA’s with the Steelers. Nat Berhe and Jonathan Bostic also get to experience and show the team how well they will fit in with the organization.

Phase 2 of OTA’s begins on Tuesday May 22 and will end on June 7. The mandatory minicamp practices for the Pittsburgh Steelers will begin on June 12 and end on June 14. The organization and fans will hope to see Le’Veon Bell report for minicamp on June 12, but he does not have to report for practice until he signs the franchise tag.
