  • Training Camp Thread

    With the opening of camps in the previous and next few days I thought we should have a thread for the small news and updates that would normally go in team boards that none of us will see, that will impact the season (or not).

    Anyway here's some stuff:

    Eagles opened their camp with the most turnover from last year, 13 veterans there last year aren't there this time. It's also the first time in 10 years McNabb hasn't been there.

    Terrance Cody who was literally too fat and unfit to play a few days ago has recently passed his fitness test and has been cleared to practice. Serigo Kindle fell down some stairs and broke his skull so he's out.

    Clausen and Tate signed and are reporting to camp.

    The Patriots, Panthers, Bears and Cowboys at this time are the only teams in the NFL to have all their picks signed.

    This link will give you all pick signings financial details (every pick, every team)

    In case you didn't know Buffalo are switching to the 34 defense this year.

    Rumor has is Andre Johnson (who negotiated his last contract extension) is unhappy and won't report to camp.

    Danario Alexander (lead the nation in receiving last year, un-drafted rookie FA) ran a 4.44 and jumped a 41 vert in a work out today. At 6-5 that's freakish ability, even after all his knee surgeries someone should give him a shot imo.

    Panthers are going full pads from the first practice.

    Who is going to be the last first rounder to sign?

    My pick was Dez Bryant so I failed...

      Eric Berry. ;)

      In all seriousness, I could see McCoy taking awhile to sign. The Glazers are hemorrhaging money right now.

        C.J. Spiller is my guess. Also, I read today that there has been very little progress between the Jaguars and Tyson Alualu so far in contract discussions.

          I'll go with JPP just because of his agent. Rosenhaus might want top 10 money.

            I have to agree with YFS, McCoy seems like a good one; I would also suggest Earl Thomas.

              I love my Giants but I think JPP is gunna be a PITA to sign. He seems very stupid to me and I just see him getting into camp very late unfortunately.

              Anyone know how hes looked in minicamps and stuff so far?

                  I am nervous for Kindle, a broken skull and a brain swelling is not good.

                    So far Michael Turner is half the man he was last year. He is now lean and mean. He was too fat last year and it showed in his start and it showed in his repeated injuries.

                      Danario unsigned shouldn't be a problem in a few weeks. I saw him play some last year and the kid makes plays. I know his knees are questionable, but he deserves a shot.

                      I think the most interesting thing with Kindle is how its going to effect his contract negotiations.

                      Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

                      So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                        R.Seymour showed up in the Rookies bus yesterday earlier then anyone expected and is ready to go and im very happy he decided not to go the C.Woodson rout
                        Greg Gross @VittorioTafur Al Davis' scholarship program has died with him. With Hue, it's nothing personal, and nothing sentimental, either. It's gladiator school now. Perform or perish., period.

                          Lawrence Timmons apparently worked his ass of this off-season and is up from 225 lbs. to 248 lbs. of muscle and healthy weight.

                          He was training both conditioning and lifting weights, doing two-a-days at times. Said his trainers also gave him some supplements that have helped him become stronger.

                          As Hines said in the Steelers Discussion Thread, hope he didn't lose his speed. Because if he didn't...

                            I've only heard negative things, about his performance, only good about his attitude I'm no Giants fan though.

                            I don't know if this is necessarily a good thing, being a load was good for him 4.5 and 4.9 in ypc in consecutive years, dropping a lot of weight can drop your strength significantly if not done properly too.

                              JPP can hold out and never play for us as far as I'm concerned.
                              granted, i'm exaggerating, but I'd rather him hold out than us throwing top 10 money a a guy with single digit career Divison 1 sacks...
