The fight for 53, and we'll be there

With camp starting today -- I am climbing in my car for Flagstaff as soon as I post this -- so then commences the "Fight for 53," with guys trying to make the roster. is following five players in that regard, including our man Lance Long. We've already talked about Long this offseason, and he is driven. Long, a man of faith, told me he is so focused on his football career he could count on one hand the number of times he went out in college. He said he has yet to go out in Arizona. Some of that has to do with his religion, but a lot of it has to do with the fact he doesn't want anything messing up his chance to make it in the NFL.

Long obviously isn't the only one we'll be covering. I'll have pix, blogs and stories starting today, Kate Brandt and our new intern Dan Nettles (he's no Georgia yet, but he'll learn) with give you the videos. You can also get more info on Twitter ( and Facebook (

Talk to you when I get to Flag.
