Kolny Cassel Q&A

Stephon Sanders Q&A

Spotlight: Secondary

Secondary had a great day of practice today. JR Richardson had a great day with a pick and could have even had a few more on tipped passes. Secondary was able to tip a lot of passes up in the air but weren't quite able to come up with more interceptions. Seemed to practice with a lot more swagger today. After one tipped pass out of bounds, Shakiel Randolph danced to the music. Darrion Richardson looked good in practice, finally got an interception late but had been close all practice.
