The Washington Redskins are hosting a minicamp this weekend and coach Mike Shanahan was kind enough to invite reporters to practice Saturday. Here are some of the most compelling storylines:
"He's a quality guy," Shanahan said of McIntosh. "I've talked to Rocky on a number of occasions. I'm glad he decided to come to our minicamp. I expect him here all through our OTAs and getting ready for the season."
"It's early; not enough time to give you a great evaluation," said Shanahan. "But you don't have to look long to realize how talented of a player we have. He's extremely talented. We're just throwing him in the fire right now, throwing a lot at him, seeing what sticks. We're throwing a lot at him, so he's gradually slowing down because he's thinking and not reacting. ... We know he'll get worse before he gets better. It's a work in progress."
Jason Reid of the Post has been talking to folks close to Albert Haynesworth about the defensive tackle's approach to the offseason. Doesn't sound like much has changed.
So there's some debate over who was starting at free safety during the minicamp, according to Redskins Blog founder Matt Terl.
