Head Coach Charlie Bell had this to say heading into camp, “We’re excited about (training) camp and getting started. We have a lot of great players and I know the fans will enjoy all the talent we’re bringing to the city. The only hard part will be that we can’t keep everyone even though we wish we could. We have way too much talent to choose from which is also a good thing. I know camp will be competitive and the players can’t wait to get started..”
