UNITY TWP., Pa. — There was one grand entrance in a mostly uneventful training camp report day for the Steelers at St. Vincent’s College in Latrobe on Thursday.
Wide receiver Eli Rogers arrived in style, driving a Peterbilt truck down the hill to the dorms.
It wasn’t just the truck that caught the attention of reporters, but also what he was wearing. Rogers was dressed an outfit often associated with Pittsburgh’s steel history. But he wasn’t reporting for work at a steel mill.
Instead, Rogers was simply reporting for duty for the 2019 season.
While some may roll their eyes at this entrance by the young receiver, it actually keeps with the message players have been trying to convey over the past few months. Once the drama died down, many veteran players expressed how this season is about business, and that business is winning a Super Bowl.
It remains to be seen how much impact Rogers can have on the field, but he at least showed up sending the message he’s ready to put in the work.
