Debut of Barnett, Smith, Thigpen

Posted by Chris Brown on August 4, 2011 – 7:30 am

It’ll be an interesting night practice today with the new signees able to participate for the first time in training camp provided 50% plus one of the players ratify the CBA with the final details being agreed upon between the league and NFLPA.

A majority is expected to vote in favor of the new CBA by 4 pm, which would allow Nick Barnett, Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen to all be on the field tonight along with Drayton Florence who re-signed with Buffalo. Head coach Chan Gailey is looking forward to it.

“Obviously I’m looking forward to that,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “I think our whole team is looking forward to getting everyone on the field and allowing us to have a full complement of players. There are quite a few from that group that we expect to be on the field next year.”

Restricted free agent TE Scott Chandler will also be participating for the first time along with long snapper Garrison Sanborn, who re-signed as an exclusive rights free agent.
