NFL Training Camp Tour Recap [VIDEO]
104.5 The Team hit the road to broadcast live from multiple NFL training camps. All of the images and audio (along with Jim Kelly putting me in a headlock) are included in this story.
It was a blast broadcasting from numerous NFL training camps. 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio broadcasted live from New York Giants' training camp in Albany, NY on 8/6. Then, I hit the road with my guy, Quiet Joe, to broadcast live from Buffalo Bills' training camp in Rochester, NY on 8/7. Finally, we hit up New England Patriots' camp to broadcast live on 8/8.
I was able to speak to safety George Wilson and 3rd-round rookie wide receiver TJ Graham at Buffalo Bills' camp. Both players were gracious with their time and a lot of fun to talk to. Hall of Fame players Jim Kelly and Andre Reed also attended camp that day. Jim Kelly was nice enough to throw me in a headlock and gave my NoeBrainer videos a shoutout. It's not every day that you get thrown into an aggressive headlock by an NFL Hall of Famer.
The day at Patriots' camp was unique because they had a joint practice with the New Orleans Saints that day. I was able to interview defensive end Cameron Jordan and former Heisman Trophy winning running back Mark Ingram. Both players were drafted in the 1st round in 2011. Patriots' linebacker Bobby Carpenter stopped by for a quick interview also.
Sorry, Jets' fans, but the Jets didn't exactly roll out the red carpet for us. I'll leave it at that. Just know that we gave it our best shot to broadcast live from Jets' camp also.
All things considered, it was an awesome time. This was actually the first time in my life that I've ever been at an NFL training camp. I loved the experience. The interviews were a lot of fun to do and the organizations that allowed us to broadcast live were very accommodating. Quiet Joe and I had a blast. Enjoy the audio, video, and pictures.
