"I better be able to pick up a lot, at least that&39;s what they&39;re expecting," Posluszny said. "Mental reps is what we always talk about. Even though I&39;m not out there [practicing], I should be able to see everything and see how we adjust. That&39;s going to be a great benefit because once I do get on the field, I&39;m going to be expected to know everything that we&39;ve covered so far." Florida Times-Union

Here's the preseason schedule on NFL Network
The Titans received their first look at their new quarterback yesterday.
One of the best parts of new CBA: all first-round picks signed by Aug. 4. No reason for first-round picks to hold out very long anymore.

The last word
"He's off to a good start in camp, yes. Last year, effort-filled in everything he did and I know he worked this offseason because he came in here in good shape. He's more in control of his body right now than he was last year as a rookie. I think he understands more of what is expected of him to play at this level and to be able to make some plays that we need that position to make for us. So at this point I think he's off to a great start and he's hungry. I thought the play in the Oklahoma, in fact I showed the team that the play in the Oklahoma drill, it wasn't that everything was perfect but there was such great desire and I think that's what you need to play great on defense. I think there's a desire that you have to have and a hungriness that you have to play with and he brings a lot of that."
