Training Camp – Tuesday Wrap-Up (8/2)

By Jake Russell | August 2nd, 2011

Tuesday’s camp was better overall performance-wise. Players and coaches alike are getting into the groove of things now that football is finally back. The big news came after practice regarding newly re-signed cornerback Phillip Buchanon when coach Mike Shanahan announced that he would be suspended for the first four games of the season but he did not clarify what it was.

During practice, I happened to see much-maligned former Redskins cornerback Ade Jimoh and talked to him about his life after football, the differences between Steve Spurrier and Joe Gibbs. Needless to say, he said the difference between both were apples and oranges. He said he was in camp because after football he completed grad school and is now back living in the area and wanted to see some old teammates again, despite there not being that many left. I was impressed that he was there and he couldn’t have been any nicer. In case some of you don’t believe that he was there, there’s photographic proof in the Tweet sheet below.

For added measure, here are a couple of pictures I snapped for those of you who weren’t there, which by the attendance of the last two days, was a lot of you.
