With many NFL teams conducting mini-camps right now, time to catch up on some Husky alums:
--- Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee writes in his Raiders blog that the passes of Marques Tuiasosopo seem to "have a lot more zip'' than during his first stint with the team (it's in a note under the June 5 post). Jones also has a note in the June 9 post about the still-in-flux backup QB spot for the Raiders, speculating that Tuiasosopo appears to have moved ahead of Andrew Walter.
--- Matt Barrows of the Bee writes in his 49ers blog that Dashon Goldson has had a really good off-season and could contend for the starting free safety job this season. However, he says it's more likely Goldson will play as the nickel back this year.
--- Jean-Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News writes that Isaiah Stanback will have to fight to make the Cowboys' roster. He writes that Stanback "better be a stud'' on special teams if he wants to make the team, though he concludes that he'll probably squeeze in.
--- Jaguars.com has a good story about Khalif Barnes hoping to repair his image after some off-field trouble.
--- Somebody asked recently about Cody Pickett, who recently signed with Toronto of the CFL, and whether he might be able to still get on an NFL roster for this season. Reading this story makes it sound as if Pickett will have to scratch and claw just to make it in Toronto.
All for now.
