Live from Orlando
By Pat Yasinskas
ORLANDO, Fla. -- It is arrival day here at the NFL owners meeting, which doesn’t officially start until Monday.
But I’ve been working the hotel lobby a bit and have seen only a few NFC South faces so far. Just had a nice chat with Atlanta coach Mike Smith. It wasn’t an interview, but that is scheduled for Wednesday.
Saw Tampa Bay general manager Mark Dominik earlier. Haven’t seen any of the New Orleans brass yet. I haven’t seen Carolina owner Jerry Richardson yet, but he definitely is here, according to Panthers media relations director Charlie Dayton.
I’ll continue lobby patrol throughout the afternoon and will check back in if there is anything of interest. But, right now, it’s just a bunch of people getting settled into the hotel.
