I Shall Call It Mini-Camp

tentMini-camps are opportunities for the NFL teams to get together and start to gel. These are short camps over a time frame less than a week. Most teams have gone through the rookie mini-camp to get the rookies on the practice field and start getting them acclimated to the playbook. It is important to monitor these camps just to get a sniff about injuries, potential hold outs, free agent indoctrinations or upcoming traing camp battles for position.

From the latest round of mini-camps we saw Joey Harrington get traded, Reggie Bush have a hamstring issue that is going to the MRI phase now, Ashlie Lelie lay the groundwork for a holdout, and Donovan McNabb trying to make a statement about T.O. without saying T.O. Speaking of which, it was also the first opportunity to have Bill Parcells lay the groundwork for T.O. telling him what to expect. We also saw the NFL change it's policy on the positional numbering system, but who really knows what that means?

All in all these camps provide the insiders a little bit of additional information and some of it can be used by fantasy players to begin to create the 2006 player projections. For most of us now it is the slow march to June and then the wait until training camps open in July, but it is right around the corner, until then mini-camp is what we have.
