Last season the Pittsburgh Steelers hosted the Buffalo Bills for a few training camp scrimmage practices at St. Vincent College in Latrobe with the agreement being that the opposite would happen this coming summer in Pittsford, NY. Now that the Bills have a new head coach, that’s no longer going to happen, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Steelers can open training camp up to 15 days earlier than the normally would this year being as they are scheduled to play in the Hall of Fame game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Now that the Steelers are no longer obligated to travel to the Bills training camp this summer, at least fans will have a few extra days to take in practices at Latrobe.
The Bills hired Rex Ryan to be their new head coach several weeks ago after Doug Marrone opted out of his contract in December. Ryan was fired by the New York Jets at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
