Before going on injured reserve with a knee injury prior to the team's second game of the season, Ben Watson showed flashes of brilliance with an incredible mix of size, speed, athleticism and overall playmaking ability. Now healthy, Watson took part fully in the team's June mini camp and hopes to display are larger sampling of his abilities in his sophomore season.
"I feel pretty comfortable physically and mentally," Watson said. "I, just like everyone else who is young, have a long way to go to be full speed with the team but I am working to get there."
Watson is also looking forward to combining with 2002 first-round pick Daniel Graham and sure-handed veteran Christian Fauria to form what should be a formidable tight end trio for opposing defenses to handle.
"We definitely were having fun out there together," Watson said of the short time the three saw action together a year ago.
