Last time I checked in we were getting ready for our second mini-camp, right after the draft. Now we’ve had a little break from camps, but we’re still in here working out with Rich Tuten. I tell you what, Rich Tuten has had a great offseason training for us. It has certainly got me on the right track in terms of my conditioning.

We’ve had some good camps so far, and now we’ve got a stretch of about three weeks of camps staring at us. These are pretty much the same as the first two mini-camps — you’ve got to go out and compete. This time around you want to be a little more crisp assignment-wise, technique-wise, especially with the new philosophy we’re trying to get established here. You won’t be perefct, but your goal is to aim to be perfect.


We get the rookies back in here again, and I’ve liked what I’ve seen after one camp. They’re in here ready to learn, and they’re players. They’re some football players. They’ve got a long way to go, but you can tell they’re good players and I think they’re going to help us tremendously this year. So right now we’ve just got to get everybody jumped in together on the same page so we can get this thing rolling.

But we still have a little break between now and that camp. We get this Friday off from conditioning, so I’ll probably just head back home, go chill with the family. Just relax and get my mind right for the June camps. We’ve got like three in a row, so there won’t be much traveling those weekends. Kind of get your mind cleared, get everything recharged up.

But I’m excited, man. You’ve got to be. Football season is about to get started. When you think about it, we’ve got camps through the second week of June. Then all we’ve got left is that break from then until training camp. It’s almost here, you know?

I’ve still got a ways to go as far as my conditioning, but I think I’m on the right track. Like I said before, camps have been good so far, and Rich Tuten has had a great offseason training for us. Guys are working hard, the chemistry’s good with the team, our morale’s really good right now, so we’re looking forward to getting this thing started.

Check in with you all later.

he is the only one on the roster i would bet on being able to not only transitiion to the new position, but also become dominant in a new position

I have high hopes for Marcus and Powell, too.

if they put Marcus as a DE I would be happy. I just don't see him anchoring @ the NT position.

I do think Marcus is quick and strong enough to play DE and powell is use to being double teamed, so i think he can play both NT and DE. I just hope Elvis can blitz a lot too

i think they can do the jobs and do them decently, but Doom is the one guy i think can make the move to a new position and excel at it.
