Everyone Accounted for in Cortland Except....

Well, everybody has arrived in Cortland safe and sound, with one exception. Leon Washington has not shown yet. Rex Ryan seems fairly confident that he will show up and indicated he has spoken directly with Washington several times throughout the off-season.

He would not confirm or specify if or what any punishment (fine) might be for Washington so we will have to wait and see when this situation gets straightened out.

Thomas Jones did show. Nothing else to tell you there.

Calvin Pace spoke to the media regarding his upcoming suspension. The league notified him at the end of last season, but did not make it public until several weeks ago. Pace said that the supplement he took was something you can still buy over the counter and is something he has taken for a while because it used to be on the list of supplements that were allowed. "It was a workout supplement that I had previously taken before [the NFL] banned substance list changed. I lapsed and I take full responsibility for it.

Otherwise everybody seemed quite happy for camp to finally be getting underway. Lots of talk about creating a close-knit team.

On the rumor front, have not been able to get any further information about the situation with wide receiver Matt Jones who has supposedly received some interest from the Jets along with several other teams. I spoke with his agent who would tell me only that there is interest but nothing concrete to talk about yet. I'll keep you posted.
