PITTSBURGH -- In a normal year, the Pittsburgh Steelers would be living in dorms and practicing on fields at St. Vincent College about an hour away from Pittsburgh in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
But with the coronavirus pandemic forcing all NFL teams to hold their training camps at home, the Steelers are learning that camp at Heinz Field can be pretty, ahem, sweet.
Players are spending their downtime in the stadium suites. Veterans have their own suites, while the younger guys are sharing their space with one other player.
Cornerback Joe Haden gave fans a couple of glimpses into his setup on his Instagram story on Wednesday and Thursday.
“I ain’t gonna lie, I got so much love for Latrobe, but training camp in the stadium is so much better,” Haden said on video as he opened the door to his suite Wednesday.

Thursday, Haden gave a full tour of the suite, which includes two televisions, a bathroom, a kitchen space and a seating area with chairs around a table, along with a couple of rows of cushy stadium seats and a nice view of Heinz Field.
