Steelers two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown is relishing his time during camp.

Brown, now 26 entering his fifth NFL season, is the most tenured Steelers WR on the roster and is taking that experience with him to his fellow WRs on the depth chart:

“We have been studying film together, understanding the concepts, the plays, what Ben (Roethlisberger) is thinking and just pushing guys,” Brown said. “Iron sharpening iron to better each other.”

Brown knows the talent is there but “they have a lot to prove.”

Sophomore running back Le’Veon Bell misses his first day of contact football on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

The injury won’t sideline Bell for long, and he definitely sees strides in his second year in the NFL.

“Last year as a rookie you are anxious to see what the game is like and trying to make an impression on people. I am going into my second year and guys know what to expect of me. Being more comfortable makes the game go easier. You aren’t thinking as much. You go out there and are ready.”
