The Steelers will, for the first time, practice against players not vying for a spot on the team's 53-man roster in training camp.
The Buffalo Bills will head down the road to St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa., to practice with the Steelers Aug. 13-14, the team announced Tuesday. Both practices begin at 2:55 p.m. ET and are open to the public.
The franchises had made this agreement earlier in 2014, but the dates had not been set. The Steelers will travel to Pittsford, N.Y., in 2015 to join the Bills' practices. Former Steelers front office executive Doug Whaley is now the Bills' general manager, and likely could be the driving influence behind the joint practice - something many teams in the NFL are now doing.
The Steelers defeated the Bills 23-10 last season in Week 10.
Of note, it will be the return of ex-Steelers offensive lineman Doug Legursky, who signed a free agent deal with the Bills last season. He spent much of the year with a knee injury. Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats will go against his former team, having signed a one-year deal with the Steelers this offseason.
