Former Warrior receiver Royce Pollard is in an empire state of mind.

Pollard has accepted in invitation to compete in the New York Jets' rookie mini camp this coming weekend, according to his father, Anthony Pollard.

It was no surprise that:

• A No. 1 quarterback was not named following spring training. The competition continues this summer.

• Defensive tackle Kaniela Tuipulotu, once considered the Warriors' top draft prospect, did not receive a free-agent offer yesterday. Tuipulotu will need more time to recover from a shoulder injury. He would not have been ready for the rookie mini-camps in the next two weeks. He said he hopes to sign a free-agent deal before the start of the NFL's training camps in July.

Tavita Woodard has his choice of playing defensive end or tight end. The feeling is he will play tight end. There were times he appeared to be swimming, but enough times where he provides a solid blocker and a dependable target.

There is a need for offensive linemen, but it appears Calen Friel will remain on the defensive line. The Warrior Bowl showed Friel is a fierce defender.
