Report: Willis McGahee Not Expected at OTA's (and Why That's Okay)

Doug Pensinger

NFL.com is reporting that Willis McGahee isn't expected to attend camp. Now some may take this the wrong way as a guy not committing to the upcoming running back competition but like many veterans Willis McGahee often spend OTA's working out on their own or resting their bodies. This type of behavior is hardly unique and in this upcoming OTA's other vets like Champ Bailey, Ryan Clady, Chris Kuper and Shaun Phillips are expected to skip or miss most of OTA's.

Overall Elway said the coaching staff wasn't worried about Willis' drive instead they want him 100% for training camp instead of stressing his body in OTA's.

Here are a few tweets from Mike Klis about the situation:

Does this mean McGahee is a lock? Not at all, merely noting that missing OTA's rarely gets a player cut, especially a vet rehabbing an injury. McGahee is still likely on the edge, and if he doesn't every get his old form back, he's likely out, but OTA's won't be the reason he's cut.
