Way back at San Antonio Commanders mini-camp in December, defensive backs spent most of their time going through drills on one part of the field while receivers went through their own drills on another part of the drill.
With training camp now in its second week, players from the two positions have gone head to head more often. When practices progressed from helmets only, to helmets and shoulder pads, and then full pads, the competition and trash talk has heated up.

Sunday’s practiced started later that usual, kicking off at 1:45 p.m. instead of the usual 11:30 a.m. Players hit the field under sunny skies and about 60 degrees. Late in the practice session, clouds moved in the the temperature dropped into the high 50s.
