...“He has unbelievable hands,” said Allen, who is entering his seventh season with the Chargers. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen him drop a pass. Just his ability to track the ball, his hand-eye coordination… If you throw it up, he’s going to get it.”
We now know that's simply Not true.

In the Starting Line-Up
According to the Athletic, Cannon is having a very strong camp and dominated Bennett.

Williams has a team high 7 pass breakups in team drills so that makes me a little more optimistic about him.

Harris was catching everything in sight in minis and early training camp and their were 1-2 possible PI's by the Lions. Let's see how he does over the next few games ...

"Trusting your eyes is always a good place to start for player evaluation, but no analysis is complete without looking at the underlying metrics. Player Profiler agrees that Harris excels at hauling in catchable targets. According to the advanced stats website, Harris finished 2018 with 90.3% true catch rate, eighth-best in the league. True catch rate is essentially catch percentage for all realistically-catchable targets, so Harris typically delivers when receiving a good pass."

"Oruwariye grabbed hold of Harris’ left arm as the ball arrived. Harris casually snagged it with his right hand, brought it to his chest, and wrapped both arms around the ball just to be safe.This has been the book on Maurice Harris forever.Just ask his first cousin, two-time Pro Bowl receiver Keenan Allen.“He has unbelievable hands,” said Allen, who is entering his seventh season with the Chargers. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen him drop a pass. Just his ability to track the ball, his hand-eye coordination… If you throw it up, he’s going to get it.”

Because the Lions with 2 PI's ? Those numbers from last year are fact. You can't change that.
A WR worthy of being a member of the defending SB champions has to fight through the contact and not lose his concentration. He didn't, so maybe he isn't.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
Great stash. Made a good play on one of the punts as a gunner against the Lions. Let's see how he does next season.
He must really be injured for them to IR him now instead of before cut downs.

Do un-vested players still pass through waivers if they're IRed during training camp?

Not for nothing, but I was just thinking. The Pats played a preseason game on Thursday, in which most of the starters didn't play at all and the rest played minimally. THEN they had the next THREE days off before coming back to the field on Monday where they had a vigorous practice. Tomorrow they have a one hour walk through, and they are off to Nashville for their work with the Titans.

Sorry but that doesn't sound like any TC I remember. The next time you hear a player of today say he hates TC, remember this SOFT schedule and compare it the 2 a days of mere decade ago, let alone the hellish TC's of my era. WOW!
