Re: Roster Battles.....
There were no pads and no hitting, although someone had to explain that to rookie cornerback Bryant McFadden, who looked as if he wanted to knock someone's head off over the weekend.
McFadden, a second-round draft pick from Florida State, had a bang-up minicamp in more ways than one. He took a few liberties on the field, including a full-body bump with wide receiver Cedrick Wilson on the final play.
"Bryant has been impressive in the three days that he has been here," coach Bill Cowher said as minicamp came to a close with one practice yesterday morning. "He is very bright and has picked it up quickly. I like the demeanor that he has exhibited on the field."
IMO...It was his first time on the field, and he impressed the coaches/media. I think he will be in the mix when it comes time to pick a starter.
