Vaughn McClure has a comprehensive overview of the day's events on Some things that stand out are the fact that Sam Baker looked to be moving around just fine, free safety Dwight Lowery took reps with the first team defense and picked off a Matt Ryan pass, and Jake Matthews looks like a veteran out there, which is pretty fantastic.
