With the team’s first preseason game days away, Etling got a ton of reps in the tropical heat and had his best practice, going 16 for 24 in 11-on-11s with an interception.
The pick came early and it was bad. A dart right into the belly of Donta Hightower that Hightower had no choice but to pick off.
But after that, Etling showed command and arm strength he hadn’t really displayed consistently. Throws in the seam and to the sideline to Braxton Berrios and Riley McCarron were fit into tight spots and delivered on a line.
