Steelers President Art Rooney II with special announcement on Tuesday

After Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin does his weekly press conference on Tuesday, Steelers president Art Rooney II will hold a special press conference of his own. According to the team, Rooney is planning a “special announcment” which got us thinking about what it might be.

What are some likely reasons the team president would be talking to the press less than a week before the start of the season? Maybe the team is planning a new remodel of the newly-named Acrisure Stadium. Or it could be related to one of the many social justice and community initiatives the Steelers organization are a part of. It could also have something to do with a schedule of special events at games or something related to alternative uniforms.

Less likely is Pittsburgh is planning to go ahead and retire Ben Roethlisberger’s No. 7. This is a theory I’ve seen floated by fans and while I am fully on board with this, it feels a bit rushed considering Roethlisberger just retired a few months ago.

Let us know in the comments what you think Rooney’s special announcement will be.
