Tweets of the Day…
Martavis Bryant unstoppable in red zone one on ones. TDs on every rep.
WR Justin Brown says he will practice today despite having surgery on his nose. Will wear a cast and visor to protect it. Says he feels fine.
Vince Williams says there is no beef between him and Le’Veon Bell. “Just two competitors going at it.”
HoJo ran through Adams in one on one, and I just can’t understand why Adams keeps his hands in so close to his body. Not getting better.
