One of the best and most comprehensive features we do every year is our Footballguys Training Camp Updates. Every week in August, our Bob Henry and his team of Footballguys Staffers cover every player that matters from every NFL team. It's incredible and frankly, probably worth the price of the Footballguys Insider PRO subscription just by itself. Each edition is almost 40 pages long.
While I encourage you to read every word of every week, I also understand Life Happens. And one of the more valuable services Footballguys can add is saving you time. For this article, I had the idea of taking the comprehensive Training Camp Update and distilling it down into 80 proof shots of the "Need To Know" material. Some teams will have more news than others. Because that's how it works in real life. Much of it will be from the Camp Updates, some of it will be my takes but all of it will hopefully be useful to you. And make sure to jump on our Insider PRO subscription to continue seeing this type of stuff all year long. And if this feature is helpful to you, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Let's get to it.
QB Carson Palmer played meaningful snaps against the Falcons, completing 8-of-13 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown pass to John Brown. Drew Stanton won the team’s backup quarterback position
RB David Johnson saw minimal work against Atlanta and is ready for the season.
WR John Brown’s return from a quadriceps injury was the big news of the week. Brown made it back on the field and contributed in a big way with a pair of touchdown catches and 49 yards in the team’s dress rehearsal game against Atlanta.
TEs Jermaine Gresham, Troy Niklas, and Ifeanyi Momah are likely to make the 53-man roster. Gresham has secured the top spot, Niklas looks locked into the number two role as a blocker, and Momah has been trending in the right direction all preseason.
