Center stage: It caught the attention of a lot of people when the first videos surfaced showing Frank Ragnow practicing at center. That was a switch from left guard, where he played every snap except one a year ago as a rookie, and it’s also at a position that’s been held down by Graham Glasgow.
Minicamp reinforced what seemed apparent in the OTA practices – that moving Ragnow back to center, the position he played at Arkansas, is not an experiment.
That opens the competition to both guards, instead of just right guard, where T.J. Lang retired after two seasons.
Holdouts: Cornerback Darius Slay and defensive tackle Damon Harrison Sr. have missed all of the offseason workouts – including mandatory minicamp – because of contract disputes, as both have expressed via social media.
All of that eventually will work its way out in some fashion, but in terms of impact on the offseason program and minicamp, there isn’t any.
It’s part of doing business in the NFL. Everybody understands that.
