“We’ve got a lot of work to do with these young rookies that our coming in to catch up with our veterans,” Smith said. “When we can really go out and do football, and what I mean by do football, is work against each other and not against air like we are in the coaching sessions here in phase two of our offseason program which we certainly hope changes in the future, because it is not the most beneficial for players or coaches.”
