Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Dak Prescott continues to exude confidence in the Cowboys’ prospects for 2018, but he isn’t about to make a Super Bowl proclamation. During his annual youth football camp, the quarterback was asked whether he was going to take the Cowboys to a Super Bowl. Tony Romo and Danny White weren’t able to win a Super Bowl.

No joint training camp for Patriots takes away scouting opportunities

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

The Patriots have held joint practices with other teams every year since 2012 (in 2011 there were no joint sessions following the lockout), but it looks like that streak will be broken this year barring any unforeseen late changes to the schedule. Typically Bill Belichick's club has worked out with clubs it will take on in preseason contests No. 1 or 2.

Green said he does not have any issues with his current contract, despite showing some support for draft classmate Julio Jones as the Atlanta Falcons wideout holds out for a new deal.

Jameis Winston’s fifth-year option creates a dilemma for Bucs

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

It remains to be seen whether the looming suspension of Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston compels the team to release him. While that’s still an unlikely outcome (the NFL’s specific findings against Winston will become a major factor, along with the possibility of further unexpected developments), it’s safe to say that the suspension will become relevant to whether the Bucs make Winston the first quarterback ever drafted by the team to get a second contract. Which means that the Bucs could decide to move on from Winston after the 2018 season, especially if the Bucs move on from G.M. Jason Licht and/or coach Dirk Koetter.

Josh Rosen: Sam Bradford “helping me out a ton”

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Word from Arizona at the end of the team’s offseason program was that rookie Josh Rosen has done well, but that Sam Bradford remains the likely choice to start at quarterback for the Cardinals come September. Trying to keep that spot on the depth chart hasn’t gotten in the way of Bradford aiding Rosen’s transition to the professional level, however. Bradford told Rosen after the draft that he would be an “open book” for the first-round pick and Rosen said Bradford’s been true to his word.
