What Steelers' players are saying during training camp.

LATROBE, Pa. - Check out some of the latest comments from Steelers players at training camp, from David DeCastro, LeGarrette Blount, and more.

Guard David DeCastro on how special the offensive line can be:
"We have been talking a lot about it. We are ready to just get out there, be together and keep it that way. I know we can be special. We just have to go out and do it.”

DeCastro on rookie defensive end Stephon Tuitt:
“He is real rangy, long athletic body. He is going to be a good player.”

Wide receiver Lance Moore on being a leader:
“It’s kind of part of my job description here. When I came in on my visit they told me they would love for me to share some of my experiences with the younger guys.  I have no problem doing that."

Running back LeGarrette Blount on his progress in the offense:
“I am happy with how I am moving along with the pass protections and the routes. I am still going to have to fine tune some of it. For the most part I think I have been pretty productive.”

Blount on being part of the Steelers power running game:
“Being that guys like Franco (Harris) and The Bus (Jerome Bettis) came through here, they were pretty good running backs coming through here. Hopefully I can be here long enough to be a part of that group.”

Linebacker Jarvis Jones on fellow linebacker Jason Worilds:
“He is just quiet. It’s something you respect. He isn’t going to say much. His words are very limited. I think you have that perception of crazy linebackers, but we have our own identity. That is the way Jason is. He is just chill.”
