MediaDay
Close-up of Cato June's tattoo on his right arm. I've said it before, I'll say it again: The NFL needs to release a media guide every year that explains the origin/impetus of every tattoo. There's no way you wouldn't flip through this during games.

MediaDay
Two things nearly caused a riot at media day: (1) the free brunch, and (2) this reporter from TV Azteca, who walked around holding a microphone and never seemed to actually interview anybody. I like the new trend of TV stations sending good-looking women to media day for no real reason. Let's keep it up.

MediaDay
Biggest disappointment of the day: Booger McFarland's podium tag identified him as "Anthony McFarland." No mention of him being "Booger." I was crushed.

MediaDay
But seriously … should there EVER be this many reporters around Jim Sorgi? Under any circumstances???

MediaDay
Marvin Harrison's personal hell: Having to talk to the media for 60 straight minutes. He was laboring. They should have sent the TV Azteca girls over there to loosen him up.
