Training Camp Recap 8/04

Here's a recap of what went on during today's training camp sessions. The team has a day off tomorrow, but check back in on Monday to see my overall impressions of the progress being made thus far in training camp and how certain position battles are playing out.

Observations from the Sun-Sentinel (1), (2):
"- Running back Lorenzo Booker struggled in his goal line appearances.

- TE David Martin (groin), LB Joey Porter (sore right knee), and S Yeremiah Bell (hip pointer ) and T Mike Rosenthal (bruised shoulder) aren't practicing today.

- Lorenzo Booker's still struggling to field punts.

- Reagan Mauia dropped an easy pass in the flat. It's not the first pass I've seen him drop and I'm starting to wonder if the Juggernaut's hands might be made of stone.

- Lemon isn't doing too hot early on. His ball's regularly are off the mark.

- Jesse Chatman looked real good on sweeps, scoring a couple touchdowns. [Lorenzo] Booker struggles running between the tackles (no surprise) and Zach Thomas was laying the wood."
Observations from the Palm Beach Post:
"- The long-awaited two-deep on D-line. 1st team: E Jason Taylor, T Vonnie Holliday, T Keith Traylor, E Matt Roth 2nd team: E Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, T Rodrique Wright, T Paul Soliai, E Chase Page. T Kevin Vickerson, an NFL Europa refugee, is the best of the third unit.

- Brown seems to find the soft spots in the defense well and has sure hands...Brown continues to excel in the short passing game...Brown looks quicker today than he’s looked all camp.

- Green has nice touch and accuracy on crossing routes - a staple of Cameron’s scheme...The QBs were a little hot and cold, but Green looked the sharpest.

- Daniels looks good. He’s around the ball a lot and might end up more than a fill-in for Goodman."
