Leinart showed a stunning performance in the early morning session. With backup QB Kurt Warner pushing for playing time, Leinart displayed terrific skills during the quarterback drills. From target practice to tackle evasion and running passes, Leinart brought his game and the fans showed their respects to their starting quarterback. Coming off a season-ending collarbone injury, Leinart had an excellent practice leaving fans confident about his health.
Breaston, entering his second NFL season, came to the field with a positive and ready-to-play attitude. With rookie WR Early Doucet aiming for the third wide receiver position, Breaston needs to bring everything he has to each and every practice in order to lock in his position. Breaston shined amongst the other receivers thanks to his speed and intensity. He made quick breaks and strong catches throughout the morning practice.
Recently signed Rodgers-Cromartie also showed a strong performance Monday morning. Rodgers-Cromartie is taking on the likes of Rod Hood and Eric Green for a starting position. Though he may not be ready to start, Rodgers-Cromartie's performance on the field showed complete capability of handling the job. He kept his coverage tight and was never outran or outplayed by the receivers. Along with great speed and strength he showed tremendous strides at practice.
As expected, James also came to the field with a tremendous performance. The recently turned 30-year old running back showed little signs of aging throughout the morning. He was on top of every play, drill, and exercise he performed. With his health and desire still very much intact, Edge is poised for a breakout season in Arizona.
