Camp Day 4: Stylish Webster Pow-Wows 'Backs

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Nate Webster doesn't look like a trash-talking maniac. He's got more of a tranquil style.

He wears his shorts halfway down his calves and his white undershirt hangs eight inches below his jersey in the back. The long white seeves covering his arms give way to bright orange gloves, all of which hang stiffly by his side when he walks instead of swinging. His movements are rounded and slow.

Once he covers his dreads with his helmet, however, Webster mutates into a pretty animated football player.

"On the sideline there's no reason to be vocal," he said, sauntering toward the locker room. "You can't talk about it if you don't do it. You've got to be about it. You show it when you're on the field."

The eighth-year linebacker was all about it Wednesday morning. Just ask Cecil Sapp. The fullback/running back hybrid fired through a gap in the line as a thud ventured from behind a pile of bodies. Webster made it clear who was on the other end of the pad-popping excitement.

"All day!" a helmetless Webster yelled in Sapp's face as he walked back to the huddle. "He don't make it!"

Played in three games in 2006, starting two -- one at weakside linebacker (Oakland) and the season finale against San Francisco at middle linebacker ... Focused on middle-linebacking duties at OTAs, but could potentially swing to one of the outside spots. "In our scheme of things, with most of the athletes we have, their ability level will allow them to play more than one position and we will look for the best combination," Bates said during OTAs.
