A few quick hits to get you going on this Monday morning.--Its always fun to come out to training camp and I certainly dont want to discourage anyone from doing so anytime there is an opportunity. But if one of the main reasons you go is to hear the pop of the pads you might want to skip the first two days of camp. Thats because per the new CBA pads cant be worn at practice for the first two days. So if you want to see some contact, well see on Saturday, July 28.--In case you missed it yesterday, I did a quick post on the relationship between Andrew Luck signing a new contractsomething Jim Irsay said is closeand RG3 getting a deal done. I think that everyone gets back to work today and that there will be an agreement in the next seven days.--Kentwan Balmer is the man on the bubble on the defensive line as was discussed here last week. I remembered something Haslett said last year when asked why they picked him up, heres the quote: I think as long as he is doing what hes supposed to do, he fits the look. He fits with what youre looking for and guys that are 6-5 that weigh 325, they just dont really fall out of trees. The guys athletic and he was a first round pick. Youd like to give him an opportunity.--The 53 looks at linebackers later this morning. I have 10 of them making it, perhaps too many. The article will be up in a while, let me know what you think.--Anthony Armstrong had two catches, including one for a TD, against the Giants in Week 1 last year. The next week he had two more receptions vs. the Cardinals. And then he caught just three passes the rest of the year. He did have a hamstring injury but, still, this was the greatest and most baffling disappearance since Amelia Earhart.Days until: Rookies report 7; training camp 17; preseason opener @ Bills; final cuts 54; Redskins @ Saints 62; home opener vs. Bengals 76
