All for less taunting, but it doesn’t have to be No Fun League

SEEN AND HEARD AT REDSKIN PARK

The quarterbacks might have had their best practice as a unit in camp in the morning. Jason Campbell had several excellent throws, and both of the kids (Colt Brennan and Derek Devine) had their moments. Todd Collins still sprinkled in some erratic tosses, but overall the group played better. Play of the day honors goes to wideout Anthony Mix, who hauled in a one-handed catch from Brennan along the right sideline. Leigh Torrance had quality coverage and Brennan threw the ball nicely, but the catch was superb.

QUOTABLE

“I sure hope so. I think it will. Hopefully they’ll double-team him and leave me alone. Things would be a lot easier in my world.”

LONG SHOT OF THE DAY

WR Burl Toler, 6-2, 200, California

Signed to the practice squad three times last season, the Redskins signed Toler as a free agent in January. His father also played at Cal, but his grandfather, Burl, earned All-American honors at the University of San Francisco before becoming the first black official in the NFL. Toler is a tall receiver, but he’s in a camp suddenly flush with them.
