Here are some observations from today's morning practice. First up is Ben Volin:
-Alabi is back on the bike instead of doing position drills. Guess his knee isn't 100 percent. We'll ask Cameron for an update.
-Beck just threw a nice ball to TE Aaron Halterman about 25 yards up the right sideline. The pass was perfectly placed between two defenders and the sideline, but Halterman couldn't hold on. Beck's accuracy is impressive.
-Nice-looking play. Beck finds Patrick Cobbs on a drag across the middle, and Cobbs takes it another 30 yards.
-I realize he's facing the third-team defense, but Beck looks real solid out there. Beautiful drop-back and throw to Kerry Reed 15 yards downfield. Reed also continues his solid camp.
Seems like it was a very light practice, as it seems they are resting up for tonight's 7pm practice at Dolphin Stadium.
Next up, here are some thoughts from Omar Kelly:
-Ted Ginn Jr.'s the fastest player on the field, and will be an immediate impact player on special teams, and an X-factor as a third or fourth receiver (possibly behind Derek Hagan). Second on that speed list is Lorenzo Booker, who will likely be a pass catching threat out the backfield.
-Marquay Love, a rookie free agent signee from Houston who started camp as a defensive tackle, has switched positions. He's an offensive guard now, and I think that's a move out of desperation (We know what you're looking for on the waiver wire Mr. Randy Mueller).
Again, not too much info. Special teams got worked on a lot this morning. Hopefully we find out some news on Joey Porter today.
