-Bowles indicated he was looking for different types of coaches when filling out his staff for this year. He said he wanted a mix of styles among intense and mellow guys and teachers.
-He mentioned nobody has a big edge in the competition for roster spots at wide receiver. Even the guys with a year under their belts are learning a new system.
-He noted last year not utilizing the tight end was due in a large part to the personnel on the roster, not just design.
-Bowles didn’t rule out the idea of using a roster spot on a specialist whose only job is to return kicks.
-He noted he can’t evaluate what people might bring on special teams very much until training camp.
