    interesting camp notes

    --Nick Burley-OLB/DE-practice squad player last season, has been practicing at the TE position

    --Turley took snaps today

    --What bulger said
    “It’s good to get back into it,” Bulger said. “All the hype and the buildup and everything this summer, to finally get here and get it over with… now we can get into a rhythm.”

    --Hargrove at Right defensive end

    --Dave Wohlabaugh not practicing

    --RB Steven Jackson: 5 years, $7 million with $2.05 million paid now and a $1.95 million option bonus to be paid next year. His base salaries are $660,000 this year; $825,000 in 2005; $990,000 and in 2006, $1.155 million in 2007 and $832,500 in 2008.

    --Arlen Harris has taken most of his reps at tailback and not fullback

    --The contracts of defensive end Anthony Hargrove, quarterback Jeff Smoker and tight end Erik Jensen are all three-year deals worth the minimum salaries ($230,000; $305,000 and $385,000 for a total of $920,000), plus a signing bonus.

    Hargrove received a $442,000 bonus and counts $377,333 against the rookie pool. Smoker got $49,000 and counts $246,333, while Jensen received $27,000 and counts $239,00

    --What Martz said
    “I would suspect that we have a chance to be better because guys like Dane Looker have played now and we have a healthy (receivers Shaun) McDonald and (Kevin) Curtis,” Martz said. “Then, of course, Marc will have the opportunity to take all the snaps with the ones. It is kind of understated when I say it’s important.
    “We are all excited about Marc being in this position.”

    --McDonald on the radio
    Main concern is his health. Injury set him back last year, been wrking out all summer, added a little weight. Knows football is such a physical business that you have to be ready whenever called on.

    According to Howard, Wohlabaugh took part in some agility drills in the afternoon.

    In addition to the general precautions, i dont think that there is a rush to bring wohlabaugh back because they want to see how king looks at guard with the first unit.

    ramming speed to all

    Re: interesting camp notes

    It's the first day anyway, don't rush it. Why do I have the feeling that the Defensive Line is going to pull a Mohammed Ali and shock the world with their play?

    I honestly do. I think the Pickett and DLew will be the run stuffers they were drafted for. Hargrove will move to the starting position opposite Little quickly. With that speed on the ends, they will be dangerous.

    Anthony Hargrove is my early choice for Defensive Rookie of the Year in the NFC. He has the speed and size to be dangerous, just the experience factor is what is the unknown factor. However, circumstances are working in his favor with Little's court date not until the season is over, the Rams losing both Wistrom and Young, and that there really isn't anyone else on the squad that you would pen in as a starter. You better use a pencil.

    That gut feeling about the D-line is kind of going around ain't it Tx?

    I agree with what you're saying, plus Kennedy will live up to billing and I have a feeling that B. Fisher will be more serviceable at RDE than some think. He will at least hold down the fort until Hargrove gets up to speed.
