Found June 13, 2012 on SteelerAddicts:
Day 2 of the Steelers 3 day mini camp offered up both a morning and afternoon practice. The final day tomorrow will just be a light workout or “hat practice” as some players call it. They will break after that and not meet again as a team until they report to Latrobe on July 25th for training camp. While there wasn’t a whole lot of news coming out of today’s workouts, there were a few things to take note of. Steelers President Art Rooney II speaks out on Mike Wallace, Roethlisberger clarifies some previous comments he made about Todd Haley and the new gameplan, and the rookie offensive lineman continue to rotate on the offensive line. The following is a summary of updates that came out via twitter today, which includes a short video of a recovering Casey Hampton running a short sprint. @MarkKaboly_Trib: Ben on Wallace: “I know Mike will be here. It is just a matter of when. We keep in contact with Mike, we love Mike.” @MarkKaboly_Trib: Watch Steelers NT Casey Hampton training during...

Little talk between Steelers and Mike Wallace
