Steelers players have begun arriving at Saint Vincent College for the 54th annual training camp at the campus.
Center Maurkice Pouncey and guard Ramon Foster were among the first to arrive.
The team will spend the next three weeks at the college dorms getting into shape and practicing before the season officially starts. Some players bring the comforts of home for their stint in Unity, while others make a grand entrance.
