Players Quotes on the First Day of Mini-Camp

New Orleans Saints Tackle Jermon Bushrod
Media Availability
Tuesday, June 5, 2012

How are you working with Ben Grubbs and getting used to him playing next to you?
“It is going to be a little different because I played the last three years with another player (Carl Nicks). He is a Pro Bowl player. He is good. He understands the game. I think we have done a good job communicating and trying to have success. That is really what it is all about at the end of the day.”

Does he ever ask about what Carl would have done in a situation?
“No, because he has to find his own way and figure out how we are going to do things. We have different techniques, our different calls, our different protections, and our different run schemes. He is going to see how other people do them. It is all about how we work together. It is a good thing, when you have somebody new coming to the line, these OTAs and Mini-Camp are a great way for all five of us to really gel together and figure out how we are going to get this thing done this year.”

Is it helpful to not have contact right now while you are getting used to working with Ben?
“Yes. I think it is very important that we get our footwork down. We definitely get our technique down, get our scheme down, and know how we are going to play different looks. He is a very smart, cerebral player so I am definitely excited about the situation at hand.”

More.

I think the left side of the line will be really good for us this year. i can see Bushrod keep developing and Grubbs picking up any slack left by Nicks.

I heard there was no contact. You too would feel much better without the cleat marks on your chest.

I've seen things from other teams saying that they are afraid to touch each other because of the new CBA.

While there wasn't anything like full contact, the Saints were definitely not shadow dancing out there today.

Seahawks violate contact rules, lose two OTA days | ProFootballTalk
By rule, NFL teams are not allowed to engage in contact during Organized Team Activities.

The Seahawks violated that rule and they will lose two days of practice time as a result. The NFL and NFLPA announced the penalty in a joint statement on Tuesday afternoon.

“The NFL Management Council and NFL Players Association have determined that the Seattle Seahawks violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement’s offseason workout rules on the prohibition of live contact during one of the club’s organized team activity days. As a result, the Seahawks will forfeit two of their scheduled OTA practices (June 6 and 7) as well as an additional offseason workout day on Friday, June 8. Seahawks’ players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled days.”

Several members of the Seahawks tweeted about the penalty before it was officially announced. Wide receiver Ricardo Lockette wanted Seahawks fans to know that “its about to go down and we were going hard at practice for you guys.”

This is the first offseason under the rules put in place by last year’s Collective Bargaining Agreement. The CBA limits teams to 10 OTA days, during which players may practice for two hours while wearing a helmet and no other pads. The CBA also requires that OTAs be filmed so that there is a record to refer to in case any drills need to be reviewed.
