“As I kept telling you guys, I’m going to put the best five players out there,” Jackson said, via ESPN.com.
Jackson admitted that Bitonio is nervous about making the move, but everyone seems to think it’s the best move.
“Was he reluctant?” Jackson said. “Yeah. I would be, too. He plays a position and he’s real good at it, but I think for his teammates, his coaching staff and for all involved, he knows it’s the best place for him to be right now.”
- Based on the news, Tony Grossi takes this as an indication that the coaching staff views Austin Corbett greater than Shon Coleman and should leave Corbett in position to work with the first-team unit.
Colts OL coach Dave Deguglielmo said first-round G Quenton Nelson is the most NFL-ready rookie he has coached in his career.
“He’s as well-prepared for … transition to this level of any guy I’ve ever been associated with as a rookie,” Deguglielmo said, via Mike Wells of ESPN. “I don’t even look at him like a rookie, because physically he doesn’t play like a rookie, he doesn’t move like a rookie. He doesn’t work like a rookie, he doesn’t talk like a rookie. He’s a little bit naïve about some things.”
Dolphins HC Adam Gase says that veteran RB Frank Gore doesn’t “doesn’t look different than he did 10 years ago.”
“He doesn’t look different than he did 10 years ago,” Gase said, via the Miami Herald. “He does a phenomenal job. He’s been preparing all spring. All I’ve heard from him since then is ‘Wait ’til training camp.’ He is the last person I will ever doubt. Just seeing what he’s done throughout his career starting in college, he’s proven every person wrong we’ve ever known.“
