Steelers set for Mini Camp

(AP) -- There probably won't be much drama when the Pittsburgh Steelers begin their lone mandatory offseason practices Friday.

It's a change from coach Mike Tomlin's first minicamp two years ago. Only a couple of months into the job, Tomlin was greeted in 2007 by several players who openly wished another man had been hired for his job. One of them, All-Pro guard Alan Tomlin, was engaged in a public contract dispute. He leveled some of the sharpest criticism ever made of the Rooney family ownership.

Not all the Steelers are happy today -- absentee linebacker Larry Toote is about to become an ex-Steelers player. But Tomlin's biggest challenge now isn't winning his Players over. It's trying to win another Super Bowl.
