lifting - got to see returning players & new players for first time today

Micky - did a great job on evaluations

Vilma - not %100, doctors reports encouraging

McCray - edge rush/speed, nickel downs, more nickel packages/plays than ever before

Meacham - medically cleared, full speed, another month rehab maybe, anxious to see

Reggie - plans on being fully involved in all of the offseason, diligent in weight room

Lito Sheppard - no info Sean is aware of for a trade, but respects him, good corner

Deuce - both sides have a great relationship, saw him today, looks good

center - comfortable with goodwin, big concern was losing both centers in FA, was a must position

Brunell - still in Hawaii, players meetings, Martin likely gone but competition will happen (LoE -- used a lot of past tense when talking about Martin)

overall - we're by no means a finished product

draft - will you favor Defense over Offense? - didn't answer clearly, just said 2-7 are just as important as 1

draft - takes 3 years to determine if successful or not

offseason - guys are excited to be back, likes the locker room/leadership, encouraged with turnout

offseason - concentrating on weight lifting/running right now, that's all

offseason - other than guys that were in seminar/players' meetings, we had %100 turnout

future singing - not discounting possibility, but focusing on evaluating what we've got right now, not really targeting anyone

London - some players already going over there looking ahead, hotels, facilities, logistics; team leaving right after game on the sunday before londan to have a full week over there adjusting

Orgeron - spent a lot of time in this hiring; he's a Cajun; very comfortable here, is like he's coming home; had to compete to get him

PT - physical, intelligent, hope he continues to improve, impressed with Chicago

Stecker - likes his versatility and leadership, excited to have him back

goal line O - needs to improve, guys will be competing, you know Reggie really did well on short yardage (LoE - !??)

Gleason - fought to make a spot here, coach is better having had a chance to work with him, we'll all remember ATL, unselfish, sharp, we'll miss

Reggie - comfortable with him on punt returns, no plans on kick returns

D Line - more effective if you can rotate, who's healthy today dictates how much you can rotate

injuries - important who isn't gonna make minicamp, will have a better handle on it end of May

safety - KK played well end of year, sees himself as someone that deserves more play; but no one's penciled in; we'll see/evaluate

then the interview cut off unexpectedly....

More from the conference....
Duece still doesn't look good enough to kiss... but never did, so that's a plus.
Said that McKenzie was a doubtful too.

Agreed, that's disturbing. I don't get it, and I don't see any humor in it.

Anyways, I was very pumped to hear that about KK, I hope he gets a starting spot.

We better get some more CBs that can actually cover is we plan on running nickel package more.

Also on the Kaesviharn note, he should have been starting all year. I'd be furious if I were him. He was obviously better than Bullocks, who in my opinion was more of a liability than JD last year. I can't believe this guy was in the game yet alone starting. Go KK!
