Default Steelers roll in

The Steelers have arrived here at Saint Vincent College ready to roll into training camp 2009.

No real surprises today - as usual on this, the most non-eventful day of the football season.

There were some unsubstantiated reports that Michael Vick was dropped off by a taxi cab at the team's practice facility in Pittsburgh. Those are false. The team is not interested in Vick.

One thing that is still cooking are contract extensions.

In addition to continuing talks with safety Ryan Clark, the team remains in negotiations with defensive end Brett Keisel.

Also of note is that offensive lineman Trai Essex said he's been led to believe he'll get every shot to unseat Darnell Stapleton at right guard.

As for now, I'm off to the run test. It appears the team is relenting a bit on closing the test to the media and will allow us to watch from the hillside above - as we did last year.

No players will be made available afterward, however.
