Greg Schiano Wants Mark Barron At CampJuly 19th, 2012
Bucs coach Greg Schiano doesn’t mess with the Benjamins that dictate much of what goes on in the NFL. When players are supposed to be at practice, Schiano wants those guys on the field, so long as they are healthy.
First round Bucs pick Mark Barron has yet to ink a contract, thus, was absent this morning when the Bucs held the second day of rookie training camp at One Buc Palace.
While Schiano isn’t mad at Barron, it was clear the first-year Bucs coach sure would like to have Barron practicing with his fellow rookies.
“He is missing repetitions and a rookie, especially a rookie who we are counting on… ” Schiano paused to choose his next words carefully and added. “I am hopeful he will be here soon.”
Schiano just before being asked about Barron explained how repititions are so important for rookies, thus why this rookie head start for training camp is important.
“You get some individual attention where maybe a week from now they won’t get that individual attention,” Schiano said. “We will make sure as an organization they to get repetitions [when the veterans arrive] because that is on the only way to get better. [But] when there is more people here, there are less reps.”
