Some coaching staffs spent the weekend wining and dining free agents. Or showing up at their houses.
The Steelers coaches hung out together on a “weekend retreat” at a Pittsburgh-area mountain resort.
The team-building exercise makes sense on a few levels. The team takes a measured approach to free agency, so the coaches weren’t going to be busy yet anyhow. Plus there are many new members to a Steelers staff which also includes an offensive coordinator that nearly got booted.
Mike Tomlin’s crew will be back in town Monday, when they will meet with wide receiver Arnaz Battle.
