Cleveland Browns:

  • “Scribbles on run game, defense and importance of Game 3” (Pluto) - “New coach Hue Jackson keeps adding more plays to his offense. He wants to add more zip to his running game. Duke Johnson was very active running the ball and catching passes in the practices against the Bucs. Jackson needs to have Isaiah Crowell and Johnson ready for the regular season.”
  • “Browns and Barkevious Mingo benefit from Patriots injuries at linebacker” (Grossi) - “An eminently likable guy, Mingo simply did not look like he wanted to tackle. His quickness could produce plays at college competition – even at the highest level in the Southeastern Conference. But he never developed a secondary move to beat average, much less elite, offensive tackles in the NFL.”
  • “Training camp recap: Browns look more explosive” (Bucs Nation, SB Nation) - “The Browns have acquired some serious athletes on their team over the past few years. A lot of those guys were giving the Bucs secondary all they could handle and then some this morning. The front seven for Tampa still looked good and forced a good amount of rollouts and tackles for loss. But when I watched these two teams go up against each other side-by-side, Tampa looked out-matched in the athletic category.”


  • “D'Qwell Jackson: Joey Bosa needs to show up to camp” ( - “At the end of the day, this is what you love to do -- you love to play this game," Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said Thursday on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "We get compensated very well, so at some point you have to talk to your agent, talk to the powers that be and like 'I want to play football, do whatever you can to get me into camp.' You need to show up to camp.”
  • “Tony Romo survives, Ezekiel Elliott electrifies” CBS Sports - “Before we begin, an important disclaimer: Tony Romo is not dead. Romo -- and the Dallas Cowboys ' season -- remains intact.”
  • “Non-QB MVPs for all 32 teams” (ESPN) - “NFL Nation reporters go beyond the QB position to pick out each team's MVP heading into the season, including Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith and Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.”
