    I think those two were very important to get in camp on time. It seems to me they have the most to learn. Rushing the QB and tackling runners are pretty much the same in college and the pros. Our D is most complicated for the LB's.

    On the other hand, Mathis has a big leap to be made from his college days and Morency has multiple tasks to learn.

    Let the countdown to kickoff begin!!

    All we need now is for TJ to sign. What kind of money do you think he will get?

    That may be part of the problem. If the picks in front and behind his "slot" haven't reached agreements yet, it may be harder to pigeon-hole his contract at the right price.

    Probably American Dollars. They usually are green, and have pictures of dead Presidents. I doubt he would be interested in Pounds, Yen, Marks, Francs, Lire, Schillings, and Pesos although I'm not his agent. I'm sure we will find out soon what kind of money he will be getting. If it's not dollars, my Yen is on Pesos.

    hey Porky,

    How are those American dollars given to TJ? Do the put them in a brief case or a sack with a "$" symbol on it? :)
