  Chiefs | Eric Berry not reporting to camp    Tue Jul 26, 03:13 PM

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry is not planning to report for the start of training camp. He has not signed his franchise tender offer at this point, so he will not be fined for missing camp.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs weren't able to sign Berry to a new long-term contract before the July 15th deadline, and now he's showing a bit of disapproval. The two sides can't work on a new deal until 2017, so Berry will have to sign his one-year franchise tender to play in 2016.

  NFL | Antonio Cromartie may not play again    Mon Jul 25, 05:19 PM

Free-agent CB Antonio Cromartie may not play in the NFL again due to lingering concerns with his hip.

Footballguys view: At this time, Cromartie is insisting that his hip is not a problem and that he has no plans to retire. We'll see if the 32-year old can latch on with a team before the season starts. Perhaps injuries in training camp will get teams interested in the veteran.

Free-agent FS Taylor Mays (Bengals) could still be re-signed by the Cincinnati Bengals despite having to serve an eight-game suspension.

  Jets | Buster Skrine favored to start    Mon Jul 25, 02:36 PM

New York Jets CB Buster Skrine is expected to start opposite CB Darrelle Revis because of his experience and his comfort level in a man-to-man defense.

Footballguys view: Traditionally a slot corner, Skrine is used to playing one-on-one against opponents. He may begin the season as the starter, but the team could decide to move him back inside if he struggles.

  Jets | Darrelle Revis hasn't tested wrist    Mon Jul 25, 02:28 PM

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (wrist) has yet to test his surgically repaired wrist in contact drills this offseason. His health is one of the key storylines to track once the Jets' training camp begins.

Footballguys view: We shouldn't see much of Revis at the start of training camp. However, all reports this offseason indicate that the veteran CB is going to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Bills | Stephon Gilmore will attend camp    Mon Jul 25, 09:55 AM

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore said Monday, July 25, that he plans to attend training camp. Gillmore was seeking a long-term deal in the offseason.

Footballguys view: According to reports, the Bills are not willing to pay the price Gilmore is seeking at this time. If he plays out the 2016 season and hits free agency next offseason, Gilmore could get a deal larger than what Josh Norman (five year, $75 million with $50 million guaranteed) got from Washington earlier this year.

  Patriots | Vinnie Sunseri signed by NE    Sun Jul 24, 06:23 PM

Free-agent DB Vinnie Sunseri (Saints) was signed by the New England Patriots on Sunday, July 24.

Footballguys view: The Saints released Sunseri back in April...largely due to injuries that have plagued his career ever since his final season in college at Alabama. If healthy, Sunseri can contribute on special teams.

  Raiders | Karl Joseph will be ready    Sun Jul 24, 01:21 PM

Oakland Raiders rookie SS Karl Joseph (knee) will be ready to participate in training camp, according to head coach Jack Del Rio. Joseph is expected to start opposite FS Reggie Nelson.

Footballguys view: The Raiders already have one of the best rising defensive stars in the NFL in Khalil Mack. The addition of Nelson and Bob Sanders-esque talent Joseph in the back of the defense should help them create more interceptions when Mack and company get after the quarterback.

  Bears | Harold Jones-Quartey could start in 2016    Fri Jul 22, 06:47 PM

Chicago Bears S Harold Jones-Quartey is expected to receive the first chance to win the starting safety job opposite S Adrian Amos during training camp. S Deon Bush will also be a candidate for the starting job.

Footballguys view: The uncertainty at the position doesn't reflect depth or quality on the roster. The Bears secondary is the weakness of the defense, with the front seven starting to come into shape. Look for them to be one of the best matchups to exploit for passing games unless Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston, Willie Young, and first-round pick Leonard Floyd can generate enough pass rush to mask the deficiencies.

  Eagles | Eric Rowe to be No. 2 cornerback?    Thu Jul 21, 05:38 PM

Philadelphia Eagles CB Eric Rowe is projected to be the No. 2 starting cornerback opposite CB Leodis McKelvin, in the opinion of's Phil Sheridan. Sheridan also said that it would not be a surprise if CB Nolan Carroll wins the No. 2 cornerback job.

Footballguys view: The Eagles need to improve the secondary and it sounds like they are willing to shift things around if need be. Rowe lost the starting job to Nolan Carroll but when Carroll got hurt, he got another shot and performed. Rowe can play both man and zone though we see a lot of press coming from him this year.

  Chargers | San Diego to have competition for CB job    Wed Jul 20, 06:25 PM

San Diego Chargers CBs Brandon Flowers and Casey Hayward will compete for one of the starting cornerback jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: There could be a lot of trouble brewing for Clemons. The investigators will find out what exactly happened then make any decision about potential charges. After that, the league should step in with discipline.

  Steelers | Sean Davis has chance to start    Wed Jul 20, 04:53 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers SS Sean Davis performed well during offseason workouts and should have a good chance to win the starting strong safety job during training camp. Davis will have to compete with FS Robert Golden and SS Shamarko Thomas for the job.

Footballguys view: The Steelers needed help at the position, and that's why they added Davis in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft. He's not great in coverage, but he can play close to the line of scrimmage as a patrolman against the run.
