Training Camp Takeaways




Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp Report

The Bengals are hungrier than ever after four-straight one-and-dones. Can a now-healthy Geno Atkins and Tyler Eifert lift Cincinnati over its playoff hump?

Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp Report

Eric Berry's arrival brought a jolt of energy to the Chiefs as they opened camp. But, as Robert Klemko writes, Kansas City's offense causes concern, and that begins with quarterback Alex Smith and the men tasked with protecting him.

Arizona Cardinals Training Camp Report

After Carson Palmer tore his ACL, the Cardinals endured a hectic finish, cycling through quarterbacks just to survive. Carson's knee is now pain-free and the Cardinals welcome the sight of a stacked offense for 2015. However the defense, without coordinator Todd Bowles, has a few too many question marks

What I Think I Think: Arizona Cardinals

Quarterback Carson Palmer is ready to return from his second major knee injury. Palmer is 13-2 in 15 starts for Arizona and if he can stay healthy, this Cardinals team is playoff bound

Green Bay Packers Training Camp Report

Packers coach Mike McCarthy surrendered play-calling duties after Green Bay's devastating loss to Seattle in the NFC Championship. Jerk reaction or wise choice?

LeBeau's Latest Project

Any hoopla surrounding the 2015 Titans stems from Marcus Mariota and Tennessee’s offense of the future. But perhaps just as important to a team mired in mediocrity is LeBeau, tasked with recreating steely defenses of the past

Titans Training Camp Report

On Marcus Mariota's near-perfection, an offensive lineman showing grit and a defensive guru taking control...

From Flowery Branch, read about what Dan Quinn brings to Atlanta from his stint in Seattle, why life has just become easier for Kyle Shanahan and what players could fortify the Falcons' defense. 

Patriots Camp Report

The ranks are closed around Deflategate as the Super Bowl champions are focused on one thing: their title defense. Sudden hero Malcolm Butler steps into a bigger role, a new running back is showing some flash and more observations from Foxborough

Oakland Raiders Training Camp Report

Don't believe Khalil Mack's 2014 sack total. Andy Benoit's dispatch from Raiders camp includes notes on the Raiders simplified defense, improved receiver corps and Oakland's massive O-line.
