The defense held in a red-zone drill to start the day. Reggie Daniels stopped Thomas Tyner short of the end zone with the ones on the field, and Jeff Lockie had a pass tipped at the line by Stetzon Bair. … Jalen Brown really stood out today. He made a really great diving effort for a ball in the end zone during position drills, though he wasn't able to secure it for a catch. Later, Brown hauled in a pass from Lockie in team drills, getting his feet in bounds after leaping toward the sideline to make the catch.
