5280 Sports Network’s Vic Lombardi visits with former Denver Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen as day one of Training Camp wraps up. Dreessen gives insight on what it is like for a player on the first day and what he observed in today’s practice with his former team.

Dreessen says Day 1 of camp is unlike any other day. “You definitely could not sleep the night before in the hotel. You went through these long, administrative meetings the night before. They kept you up until midnight … and then practice is not even real football.”

Lombardi called training camp practice “boring, uninformative and stale.” See what Dreessen says fans, media and players alike should really be watching for when they come out to see camp.
