Quotes and Notes from today's first practiceAugust 11, 2004 · MT Media Relations
"As for the newcomers, I thought Keon Raymond and Tavares Jones did some nice things out there today on defense, along with Bradley Robinson. Stephen Chicola (tight end) made some catches and opened some eyes and I thought Linnie Yarbrough and Sean Waller did a good job of catching the ball."
