Training Camp Position Battles--article--


Recommended Posts


The Washington Redskins’ minicamp, scheduled for this coming weekend, is a more significant event for some than it is for others. Even if Mark Brunell didn’t have a broken finger that will keep him out of the three-day event it would be of only minimal importance to him. If it’s hot, look for Clinton Portis to be a spectator more than a participant. Marcus Washington could take the same tack but, knowing him, he’ll be out there hustling on every snap.

For many others, however, June 16-18 has been circled on the calendar for quite some time. The sessions will have an immediate impact on their short-term and/or long-term NFL futures:

Derrick Frost—There will be a lot of punting going on as special teams are a big part of the camp. Frost has an opportunity to dismiss the challenge that David Lonie, the rookie free agent punter from Australia by way of Cal, is expected to pose. A booming performance by Frost will send the coaching staff into the six weeks before camp starts with a positive impression; something less than that, coupled with a good showing by Lonie, will sow seeds of doubt that will linger into camp.
