Darnold: “For me, it’s focusing on what I can do right now.”

Sam, with advice for every one of us, in every situation.

McCaffrey says the goal is to be fresh come the regular season, so adjusting offseason reps makes sense. Likes the “open communication” with staff.

He’s always looking for new ways to be ready, and has talked to a lot of backs, including Marshall Faulk about offseason plans.

Jeremy Chinn said all his focus has been on being a safety, and making more plays (and having an impact on the whole defense) there. He’ll still move around at times, but that’s what he is now.

He also “loves” working with Steve Wilks, he said with a huge grin.

Rhule says Marquis Haynes had surgery on his hand.

Doesn’t seem to be a long-term concern (that’s my interpretation at least).

Matt Rhule says Sam Darnold is “working as hard as he ever has,” and is making progress this offseason. Sees mechanical improvements, and that Sam has “bought in completely” to the Ben McAdoo way.

Two pretty good offensive options, 2 and 22. (Wanted to mix up the grainy cell phone pics from the normal “several QBs throwing” shot.) pic.twitter.com/L0sQx7l1oS

DE Marquis Haynes not practicing, wearing a sling, left hand in a cast.

Several other players in green jerseys, signifying they’re at some point in the return-to-play protocols, including Foreman and Nixon.

It’s mildly interesting (to me) that when they do individual drills, they’ll have Brady Christensen snap to QBs. They have four here.

They don’t need a short-term center, but if BC can do that down the road, it’s reasonable to imagine him being good at it (smart, explosive).

A few veterans not here for the voluntary work, including WR Robbie Anderson.

Handful of players in red jerseys for open OTA, including DE Yetur Gross-Matos and WR Shi Smith.

Attendance is good for the voluntary work (and yes DE Brian Burns is here).

First two dudes out to the field for the first (open to the media) OTA – Matt Corral and Sam Darnold.
