Coach would like to see more Players get a chance

Gruden didn't like the fact that only a handful of his roster players were able to take part in this past weekends Rookie Mini Camp due to a pre-existing NFL Rule where vested players are prohibited from participating in Rookie Camps:

"There's only going to be six or seven men from our roster that will participate in this camp," he said. "I don't agree with that. There are a lot of guys that haven't taken a snap in the league that, I think, should be at this camp. They need the work."

Thats really a silly rule the NFL has, I mean I can understand the NFL wanting its teams to focus solely on the new comers, but as Coach Gruden pointed out, there's players on the active roster who have yet to see a snap in the NFL. Off-Season Rants, Bah!
