While a majority of fans will be focusing on the Georgia Bulldogs first official day of Fall Camp (in case you missed it: they received their play books yesterday ), there are some former Dawgs who might bear watching as they make their way through NFL Training Camp—one such player is former wide receiver Tavarres King, who is already turning a few heads:
“He’s done a good job. We didn’t get to see a ton of him during (offseason workouts),” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “But he’s made some big plays down the field. He is catching the ball fairly consistently, and he’s done a good job of not being the guy we are calling out to fix things. He studied his book, obviously, this summer and made sure he wasn’t going to be the guy making mistakes.” (Jeff Legwold, The Denver Post)
Most figure King to make the Broncos roster—in a backup role for now—so long as he performs well. He figures to be a nice piece for the future, as the addition of Wes Welker in the off-season gave the Broncos some room to develop a player at the receiver spot. King figures to be that player as his ability to stretch the field is something Denver coaches liked the most about him.
Good luck, TK!
