Redskins Training Camp: Day 2 In Review

Day 2 of of training camp is in the books,with the players being blessed by the rain gods. The afternoon practice was rained out...but things should get more exciting today, it's the first practice in pads.

Here's a quick recap of day 2:

A defensive end who left college after his junior year because of a failed drug test is turning heads at Redskins Park. No, it's not 3rd round supplemental draft pick Jeremy Jarmon. It's some guy named J.D. Skoltnisky, and undrafted Free Agent from JMU. I like his name and I like his school, I'll be pulling for this underdog.

Charles Robinson has a nice profile of Jason Campbell and how he's ready to move forward from the soap opera offseason.

Devin Thomas has the opportunity to take the #2 WR spot from Randle EL.

Randle El may lose his spot as the teams #1 punt returner also.

Happy birthday Brian Orakpo. I didn't give him the official Fatpickled birthday salute yesterday, but I'm sure he didn't miss it...considering he signed his new contract worth $20 million. Happy birthday Mr. Orakpo, may we celebrate with many sacks and some turnovers.

The best of Twitter day 2:

@redskinsblog NEWS: Redskins agree to terms with first-round pick Brian Orakpo. (Matt Terl breaking the Orakpo signing late Thur night)

@1067thefandc Jim Zorn was thrilled with Fred Davis' progress, tells me he is really happy with his progress, work ethic and ability to focus on tasks -CR

@RickMaese If Skins wanted to practice indoors, they'd have to rearrange some furniture, I think.

Even if the rain stopped, the Redskins' turf field can't be used - that's where The Danny's radio station has set up shop with a huge tent.

@Dhall23 - Overtime! "The more u sweat in peace the less u bleed in war!" (D Hall doing a boxing workout last night)

Cheers and Hail
