Wednesday is a big day for the NFL.
It is the day when the 2021 Regular Season schedule is released.
While this used to be just a tiny blip on the offseason radar, and usually wasn’t wildly known until you got a refrigerator magnet in the mail, it is now a major even on the NFL calendar. The NFL knows how to pump up an event and turn it into something significant.
When you look at the overall scope of the offseason, outside of mandatory minicamp this is the last big event before teams report for training camp this summer. So, in typical NFL fashion, they are going to get every ounce of juice out the lemon before the dog days of summer start.
With that said, we are going to keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors of the NFL schedule release, not just for the Pittsburgh Steelers but all teams, right here in the tracker. Please be aware these are just rumors, and might turn out to be wrong. We are just reporting what is being discussed across the NFL landscape. If things become official with any report, we will put them in the OFFICIAL category below.
Want to refresh your memory on who/where the Steelers opponents will be this year? Check out the information below:
