Even though he had yet to officially sign his contract, Layne has been participating in OTAs with the Steelers over the last two weeks. He said on Thursday that he’s gotten adjusted to the NFL after being a bit star-struck on his first few days. “It was crazy at first, but at the same time, we have to get out here and work,” he said. “We’re just working now. They’re just regular people, now, just like back in college.” Layne said he’s been working outside, behind returning starter Joe Haden and free agent singing Steve Nelson. 19shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:featuredJustin LayneMichigan StatePittsburgh SteelersSteelers Up Next Ryan Switzer Relishing OTA Reps After Late-Summer Trade to Steelers in 2018 Don't Miss Sights and Sounds from Steelers OTAs No. 6 Alan Saunders Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Exclusive with former Steelers QB Landry Jones Steelers Roster Projection after Preseason Week 2 Poll: Who Should Be Steelers Backup Quarterback?
