Wednesday marked the first day of training camp and with that, we got to watch as players entered and left the building. In meetings all day and picking up their equipment, players could be seen getting out of their cars and trucks looking at the field of reporters and cameras pointed and clicking towards them.
In the images that I was able to capture, we saw safety Will Hill, wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., Konrad Reuland, and Crockett Gillmore.
From behind the camera, it was a surreal experience. Imagining what it was for young players like tight ends Crockett Gillmore and Konrad Reuland. It was also interesting to see who drove what. With big trucks being favored by some of the team, fancier cars for some of the others and even a few really nice vehicles for team members like Steve Smith Sr.
Two of the most interesting vehicles was a tricked out Mercury Cougar that sounded like it had a big block in it as it revved up. A brand new Mercedes Jeep-type of vehicle, and a nice new Dodge Charger.
