Phil Snow excited by all his new options

He acknowledged the risk in trying to install too much, but that's what June practices are for.

"It's a lot of fun, but I also have to be smart that we don't give them too much, that we don't burden them with assignments so that they can play really fast," Snow said. "That's the catch-22 to it. You're always trying to balance that."

But mostly, Snow's enjoying OTAs for a couple of reasons. One, they didn't have them last season, which left coaches changing tires on a moving car once the regular season started. And the additional personnel gives Snow some new options, so tinkering around on things he can do this year gives him reason to think things can get better.

At the same time, Snow realizes it is still June, and they're far from where they need to be.

"We're encouraged. ... but we're still not playing football, right?" he said. "We don't have pads on, but we're doing some good things moving around.

"I think there's a lot of positive energy when you talk to the players, and there should be. Hopefully we can carry that into camp."
