Mario Alford's approach to make the 53-man roster

Rookie receiver Mario Alford isn't just an idealistic kick returner with hopeful designs to replace Brandon Tate -- the role most observers have him filling. Indeed, the seventh-round rookie graduated from the "don't care, just get there" school of NFL roster-building.

Alford received some work at receiver on the second team unit on Friday, while also fielding punts with Adam Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Giovani Bernard and Tate.
