Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg got a few toys in the off-season. Rookies like Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy and Cornelius Ingram are all expected to chip in this season.
McCoy and Ingram are in camp and impressing coaches so far, albeit without the pads on.
Maclin remains unsigned. So how much has the receiver missed.
"It's my experience with rookies that help a ball club - or helped the club that I've been on - they've missed very, very little (these first three days)," Mornhinweg said. "It's just a big advantage to be at every practice."
Meanwhile, Mornhinweg says he's looks forward to seeing McCoy when the pads go on and the hitting begins.
"There are a couple of things that I really would like to see and see him do well," Mornhinweg said. "That will be important once we get into it with the pads on."
"He's still working through some things, but he's really a bright young man. I do think that by, let's say the middle of training camp, he should be pretty comfortable."
Pass protection is one thing the coach would like to see his young running back handle.
