Steelers ready for football after bumpy offseason

(AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) PITTSBURGH (AP) — Maurkice Pouncey is eager to talk about something other than his questionable choices in headwear. Like his job, mostly. The Pittsburgh Steelers center began training camp by apologizing again on Friday for being pictured wearing a baseball cap earlier this month supporting former college teammate Aaron Hernandez. Pouncey and twin brother Mike — who played with Hernandez at Florida — wore hats that read “Free Hernandez” during their co-birthday party in Miami. Hernandez is currently in jail in Massachusetts facing a murder charge in the death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. He has pleaded not guilty. No matter the context of the picture, Pouncey understands it was a poor choice.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin watches as their fourth round draft pick quarterback Landry Jones out of Oklahoma throws during training camp at the team training facility in Latrobe, Pa. on Saturday, July 27, 2013 . (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) Landry Jones was a big time college quarterback, no question about it. In his time at Oklahoma he threw for over 16,000 yards and over 100 touchdowns as a four year starter. He has the size, 6 ft. 4″, 229lbs and he has a rocket arm. The Steelers made him a 4th round pick indicating they saw something they liked in him. The question everyone has is what will his roll be this year and beyond with this organization?
