Reporting day for the Pittsburgh Steelers is now behind us as the mystery of whether or not restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace would report on time and sign his tender. As expected, he didn\’t, so camp moves on without for now. The conditioning test has been run and the opening PUP list has been set, so with that we move on to day two of training camp and this post will serve you up the days news and events as the Steelers take the practice fileds today in Latrobe.
I f you missed the updates yesterday, or want a quick recap from day one of training camp, just follow the links provided. Later this evening I will have my daily recap per usual.
