Predictably, quarterback Henry Burris was smiling and laughing. Maybe he flashes those pearly whites every day.

Receiver Fred Rouse was showing his dance moves.

And coach Don Yanowsky was barking at the players -- an awesome highlight reel of quotes that can't be used here.

Under a cloudless sky, it was a good Day 2 of the Ottawa RedBlacks mini camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.

The players come from towns and cities like Abbeville, Dunwoody, Spiro, Willow Run, Ladner and Echo Bay -- hell, one of them is from Beirut.

What fans see are tangible things -- pass completions, touchdowns, interceptions, fumbles, fumble recoveries, sacks ... and a final score. Good or bad, players are often measured by numbers.
