One thing noticeable in Redskins training camp today: How corner Bashaud Breeland has developed with his hands. As a rookie Breeland's coverage skills were solid but he liked to hold. Coaches wanted him to play with his hands lower in some coverages to help. And that's what was noticeable today. Against Pierre Garcon on some routes, Breeland's hands were near Garçons hips. Even if he held its unlikely it would be caught. Breeland is a smart corner who learns lessons well. That's just one example.

Details of Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract with the Jets: Technically, it's a two-year contract with a voidable. Five days after the Super Bowl, it voids to one year. The two-year structure allows them to spread the signing bonus ($10M) over two years. His base salary is $2M, meaning his cap charge is $7M. There will be a $5M dead charge in 2017. (Per Adam Schefter).

Coach Jason Garrett shares a moment with Mickey Spagnola, one of four members of the organization that survived a fatal accident involving the club's tour bus earlier this week. Four people in the van that collided with the club's tour bus died in the accident, which occurred on U.S. 93, the main route between Las Vegas and Phoenix.
