Programming note: Rookie minicamps

All four NFC West teams are holding rookie camps beginning Friday and running into the weekend.

I'll head over to the Seattle Seahawks' session, which requires only a drive from NFC West blog headquarters.

The plan will be to attend San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals camps when veterans convene for mandatory work from June 12-14. I'll then plan for an extended stay in St. Louis when the Rams begin training camp July 28. That has worked well in the past.

A trip to Canton for the Cardinals' exhibition opener -- and Cortez Kennedy's Hall of Fame induction -- is also in the works.

Enjoy your Friday. I'll report back later in the day.
