Last season the Pittsburgh Steelers broke a 53-year tradition of holding their training camp at Saint Vincent College thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team held an abridged version of training camp at their team facilities. According to NFL reporter Tom Pelissero, this could be the case again in 2021.

Pelissero is reporting NFLPA executive DeMaurice Smith has informed agents there is a real possibility OTAs and minicamps will be virtual and the offseason could be a repeat of 2020 if vaccinations aren’t available to players and staff.

The Steelers finished the 2020 season with a 12-4 record, won the AFC North but exited the playoffs in the first round.
