Vets helping rooks

The other day I pointed out how Shawne Merriman displayed leadership by helping out OT Ed Wang with pass rush tells from opposing LBs. A good number of the vets have helped out rookies with questions knowing they didn’t come into training camp with any foundation of knowledge with respect to the offense or defense.

Fifth-round pick Johnny White has been asking Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller questions through the first week of training camp.

“Yeah. Simple little things to correct my game and little things that the playbook might not cover,” said White. “But since they have game experience they can help me out with that, so they have been a big help.”

White feels at this point he’s got the hang of the playbook and is working on minor corrections with reads, protections and the like.
