ALAMEDA - The players are free to roam, so I guess that means I can take a little time off, too.
Today's minicamp ended on-field team workouts until July 27, when training camp begins in Napa.
If there were a "star" today, I'd vote for Ronald Curry. The receiver made an acrobatic catch on a pass from JaMarcus Russell in front of Chris Carr. He finished the play by spinning away from Carr and stretching to get the ball over the goal line.
Later in practice, Curry made a leaping catch on a Josh McCown pass along the sidelines.
And no, I don't think those were on third down. Of course, if this were last season, Curry would have been promptly removed after making such plays, when he was used mainly on third down most of the season.
Mike Williams worked out with the training staff today. That means he practiced just once after being acquired from Detroit with Josh McCown in a trade during this year's NFL draft. He injured his hamstring during his first practice.
Rookie running back Michael Bush also took part in drills. He said he would be ready for training camp, though the team is expected to give him plenty of rest. He broke his right leg at the start of last season at Louisville, which is why he slipped to the fourth round.
