Camarillo, 30, caught  nine passes for 121 yards for the Vikings last season. He was with the Dolphins the previous three seasons.

Observations: DE Junior Galette continued a strong presaason and could start for Will Smith during  Smith's four-game suspension. After that, he could fit into the regular rotation because of his pass rush skills...CB Elbert Mack could win a roster spot as a backup CB and special teams player...Former LSU QB Ryan Perrilloux was 2-for-2 including a 14-yard TD pass for the Giants in their win over the Jets...If there's any justice, Bernie Madoff and Jerry Sandusky should be forced to be cellmates...I saw someone in a tavern who wasn't holding a cell phone and was shocked...

 

 

NFL scouts are encouraged by Tyrann Mathieu's mature decision  to enter rehab. Listed by LSU at 5-foot-9, 178 pounds, Mathieu lacks the size scout prefer.

He'll likely score more as the season goes on and finish in the in the double-digits. His long-term ceiling is insane, because he has guard-like skills and quickness in a freakish body with room for growth, but this year, his statistical impact will primarily be limited to the defensive end.
