July 23, 2014
By the end of this week every NFL team will hit the field for training camp, and seven former Colorado State Rams are among those players sweating through two-a-days in preparation for the 2014 season.
Tight end Crockett Gillmore, the Baltimore Ravens’ third-round draft choice in May, was the first to report with his fellow rookies on July 16, while tackle Erik Pears and the rest of the Buffalo Bills veterans followed on July 19.
New York Giants second-round draft choice Weston Richburg also is on the field as of Tuesday, while the remaining former Rams in the NFL will hit the field on Thursday, seeking to solidify a roster spot and make their teams better in their chase for the Lombardi Trophy.
Undrafted free agents staying close to home—linebacker Shaquil Barrett and running back Kapri Bibbs—reported to Dove Valley today with their Denver Broncos teammates; quarterback Caleb Hanie reported to Dallas Cowboys training camp today in Oxnard, Calif., and guard Shelley Smith follows suit in Miami on Thursday after leaving St. Louis as a free agent in the spring.
In addition to Smith, the Dolphins' camp features additional Colorado State flavor, as current CSU assistant head coach and linebackers coach Tim Skipper is assisting Miami's coaching staff through the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship.
