Tweet, Tweet

At Jags camp, interviewed Coach Del Rio in his office 'bout 9:30 last nite – as he stretched out in a recliner.  Felt like a psychologist.

Jags TE Marcedes Lewis had breakout year in 2010.  Guess what? He looks primed to be better, leaner down 15 pounds after #MMA training.

@Jarrett Bell

After this season no one will question the decision to pass on Tebow for Alualu.  Choose your adjective about Tyson…stud works just fine.

@JagsVoice (Voice of the Jaguars Brian Sexton)

Woke up to a friend request from my mother on Facebook. :-/ I don't think I want to add her.  LOL.

@BIGN98 (defensive tackle Nate Collins)

The last word

"We feel good about where he is now and where he's going to be as we finish up camp and get into the regular season. So a really solid prognosis for the concern we had there and it was looked at and evaluated and whatever was necessary was necessary and we move on. I feel good about the fact it's behind us and we know we're going to have him healthy."
