Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Training camp by the numbers

The Jaguars, at times, like to throw around useless factoids that can be somewhat entertaining. Here are a few recent numbers thrown out there that are pretty interesting:

12 1/2 - Maurice Drew's shoe size.

5 - special teams only practices during camp.

10 - night practice sessions at camp.

18 - practices open to the public.

40 - loads of laundry per day at camp.

40,000 - pounds of laundry washed in a week at camp.

20,116 - pounds of weights in the weight room.

50 - gallons of detergent used in laundry each week.

10 - gallons of bleach used for laundry each week.

2 - pairs of shoes used by Fred Taylor each week.

2 - workouts required for each player each week.

60 - footballs used.

200 - bags of sunflower seeds consumed over a two-week period (this is a real stat, folks).

17 1/2 - John Henderson's shoe size.

1 - Superman logo printed on the sole of Drew's cleats.
