PITTSBURGH — Steelers offensive line coach Pat Meyer had his first day of minicamp with the Steelers Tuesday at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex. Early into the practice, he took the Steelers’ offensive linemen to work specifically on run blocking drills.

Just two years ago the Steelers had one of the older offensive line in the NFL with Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro as starters.
