Mike Tomlin began meeting with the Steelers’ rookies and practice squad players Tuesday at the Rooney Complex as he began his exit interviews to complete the 2019 season. He also began meeting with the team’s potential free agents.

In case there was any question regarding the team’s feelings regarding the potential free agency of Bud Dupree, Tomlin made no bones about it.
