Gerald McCoy Day
Today officially is Gerald McCoy Day, compliments of Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett
, who will make the proclamation at City Hall at 8:30 a.m. The Southeast High School drum line, of which McCoy is a past member, will perform.
McCoy will have a private workout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers inside the Everest Training Facility on Wednesday and is scheduled to work out next week with the Rams.
Eldridge overcomes neck injury
Tight end Brody Eldridge
, who is hoping to land on an NFL roster, had a solid performance before the numerous scouts who flew to Norman to watch Bradford.
During Bradford’s passing workout, Eldridge didn’t drop a single pass. He also showed he has good speed for a block-first tight end, running the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds.
"I ran well, caught the ball well,” Eldridge said. "Those were the two knocks people had on me, but I really did well.”
There was concern that Eldridge’s football career would be over after he sustained a season-ending neck injury at Nebraska. Originally, the injury was diagnosed as an AC joint sprain, but turned out to be a stress fracture in his neck.
"Doctor (Brock) Schnebel
took good care of me,” Eldridge said. "At the combine, they ran a number of tests on me, and everything checked out.”
PCN’s Wilson takes in Bradford workout
There aren’t many people who have seen Sam Bradford
throw the ball more than his high school coach, Putnam North’s Bob Wilson
Wilson watched Bradford’s workout Monday morning, and though the workout drew rave reviews from the NFL personnel, for Wilson it was just the same old Sam.
"There’s not any difference of opinion for me after that,” Wilson said. "What you see is what you get with him. If you’ve watched him for the last few years and you’re not a believer yet, I don’t know what to tell you.”
