"I'm definitely catching on to everything," Carrington said. "But I know that training camp will be just another introduction to the NFL. OTAs and minicamp, I believe, went really well for me.

But it was another humbling experience, just to see all the talent around and having to step my game up that much more. It's been good so far. I'm anxious to get to training camp."
