One of the more interesting contests is within the group vying for the third wide receiver spot behind locks Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. On the eve of training camp, there wasn’t much buzz surrounding journeyman receiver Greg Little and while he is far from a sure thing to secure the No. 3 on the depth chart, he has opened some eyes during this first week at St. John Fisher.
“It’s training camp,” said Little. “The goal is to get better every day and that’s really my concentration right now. I just come out here and try to build on what I did the day before. Trying to put days on top of days.”
Little may owe some of his training camp success to an offseason partnership with Tyrod Taylor. The two worked together after minicamp and seemed to have built a level of chemistry as a result. One has to wonder if that chemistry can be an ‘X’ factor in helping Little differentiate himself from the stable of capable receivers gunning for playing time.
