John Carlson has been impressed by coach Barry Trotz.
He got to speak with Trotz and Washington's new coaching staff over the summer and they are all back together this week as training camp approaches. "Very detailed from what I've heard, from the summer camp to what he wants to carry over and stuff like that," Carlson said of Trotz. "He's very good with that, very directional, very detailed. I think our team could use a lot of that." Carlson is also excited by off-season acquisitions Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik, who are expected to add leadership and depth to Washington's back end. Their presence may take some pressure off of Carlson and ease his workload. Aug 28 - 3:06 PM
