This will be a daily thread of all the biggest happenings in the NFL. It will be your one stop shop for all the latest NFL news of the day that you need to know. This is the slowest week of the sports calendar. But a week where the national sports media shifts its attention to the National Football League. This league never sleeps as evident by the newswire constantly turning.
We have 8 rookie classes reporting to Training Camp today. The Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, new Orleans Saints, New York Giants, and the new York Jets. There are some big time rookies reporting today who should have an immediate impact on their teams. Reports are that the NFLPA announced there will be legal pushback if Deshaun Watson is suspended for the season. A couple of high profile Quarterbacks are in need of a contract extension as the clock ticks on getting those done. And the Carolina Panthers just released a new black-out helmet.
