Cam Heyward is entering his 12th NFL season after an All-Pro performance in 2021. The star defender for the Pittsburgh Steelers also addressed the idea of joint practices via social media.

During the NFL preseason and fall training camps, many teams like the chance to take part in joint practices with other franchises. For some players, it is the best chance to see the closest thing to live game action.

Unfortunately – for the Panthers and Chargers – a joint practice Wednesday led to a brawl that spilled over close to a section of fans.

Following that event, Heyward sounded off on the idea of joint practices. Needless to say, he was blunt – and brief.

Apparently, Heyward is a man of few words.

The 33-year-old defensive lineman is coming off a 10-sack season for the Steelers with 17 QB hits, 15 TFL, 9 passes defended and a forced fumble. He has 3 first-team All-Pro selections in the past 5 seasons with the Steelers.
