Grant continues to learn from the best


LATROBE, Pa. - It's gotten hot again this week at St. Vincent College and at this point of training camp practices are threatening to become repetitive.

But rookie cornerback Doran Grant is looking forward to more of the same on a daily basis.

"I'm trying to have fun with it," Grant said. "I think I've been doing a good job of having fun with it. I've been having a good time here.

"It's a good training camp. I'm learning a lot and I'm embracing it, so it's been good. Every day you can come out here and learn something new and get better, just have the right attitude."

The fourth-round pick has progressed from playing special teams on Aug. 9 against Minnesota to playing cornerback during the second half of Friday night's 23-21 loss at Jacksonville.

"I think it went OK," Grant assessed. "I got the speed, the feel for the game, the NFL game, in an actual game. So it felt pretty good."

Grant already had an appreciation for going against top-caliber NFL wide receivers thanks to practice encounters with Antonio Brown.

The two were at it again today, running side by side and stride for stride down the sideline.

"He's the best receiver in the league," Grant said. "It's a great experience, great competition and you learn a lot. You learn what the top dogs look like."
