...Jason Taylor worked on both sides of the line today, first lining up on the right side with Andre Carter on the left side. Clearly they'll use Taylor all over the place at times.
...Rookie tackle Chad Rinehart has looked very good. He handled Taylor
for the most part this morning. Taylor is obviously not at peak form –
one NFL source called him a slow-starter, for what it's worth – but
Rinehart did a very nice job. He still sets up a little too upright for
me, but his footwork is sound.
...Taylor did get inside Jon Jansen on one stunt. But Jansen has fared
well against him thus far.
...Chris Wilson seems no different than last year. Rinehart handled him
easily. My Favorite Rookie also drove out Carter on one play. He's
playing exactly the way some draft experts told me he would.
...Pass of the day: Jason Campbell hitting Antwaan Randle El on a corner
route in the end zone. Randle El dragged his feet inbounds to complete
the 25-yard pass in this two-minute drill.
...I thought Demetric Evans looked bigger and sure enough he is, by about
10 pounds. Seems he followed Phillip Daniels' power-lifting routine and
is clearly stronger. He's flashed as much as any lineman this camp.
...Shawn Springs picked off Derek Devine. Guessing that won't go in his
...The more I see of Colt Brennan, the more I think he's several years
away from contributing, if at all. His delivery needs fixing; he needs
to bulk up; and he needs to make quicker decisions. Other than that ...
...But the rookie class has some promise. End Rob Jackson does something
every so often to make you go, ‘'hmmmm.'' Today, he dropped into
coverage and deflected a pass. At this stage, he's merely intriguing.
But that's a little more than I anticipated.
...Rookie corner Justin Tryon, another guy with good potential, went
stride for stride with Devin Thomas and broke up a deep pass. He later
had good coverage on Billy McMullen, showing the ability to turn and
... London Fletcher's wife delivered their second child Tuesday morning;
Cortland Steele Fletcher. How nice that a linebacker gives his son the
name Steel(e). Fitting.
...Corner Matteral Richardson had nice coverage on Malcolm Kelly on a
deep route. He ran with him, turned at the last moment and deflected
the pass from Devine.
...At the end of practice, both sides of the ball picked a representative
from among the linemen to field a punt. If they caught it, their sides
of the ball would get an extra hour of curfew. Justin Geisinger went
first and easily caught a high punt from Derrick Frost. Next came Ryan Boschetti, who actually moved to his left to catch a wobbly Durant Brooks punt. Boschetti then punted the ball away to cheers from his
