The Pittsburgh Steelers are about to start their second week of OTA practices and now that the calendar has flipped over to June, it’s beginning to feel like the start of training camp is now right around the corner.
In case you are wanting to start counting down the days until the Steelers first regular-season game against the New England Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reminds us Tuesday morning that we are now exactly 100 days away from the kickoff of the 2015 NFL season.
We are now exactly 100 days away from the Patriots hosting the Steelers, and the kickoff of the 2015 NFL season.

The Patriots are currently favored by 2½-points over the Steelers as their quarterback Tom Brady awaits his appear hearing for the four-game suspension he received several weeks ago for the role he supposedly played in Deflate-gate.
The Steelers will be allowed to open their 2015 training camp a few weeks earlier than normal due to them being selected to play in this year’s Hall of Fame game. Those official dates for the annual trip to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe haven’t been released yet, but we expect they will be soon.
