49ers training camp: Nick Moody to get first team ILB reps Saturday

The San Francisco 49ers will rotate linebackers next to NaVorro Bowman early in training camp. Will this open the door for someone to usurp the role from Michael Wilhoite? The San Francisco 49ers placed Michael Wilhoite on the NFI list to open training camp, and as they hit the practice field Saturday evening, they have some ideas on how they will rotate their inside linebackers. Eric Mangini told the media Saturday afternoon that Nick Moody will get first team reps with NaVorro Bowman at the first practice. However, Mangini also said Philip Wheeler and Desmond Bishop Magini says Nick...

The next player on the "to-sign" list is Bobby Wagner, and Pete Carroll mentioned that the team is working on an extension for him as well. Both players spoke to reporters after practice.

2015 NFL countdown: 43 days until the season and a look at Cardinals jersey No. 43

Another number with little history. We are now down to 43 days until the start of the 2015 NFL season for the Arizona Cardinals. So today we look at jersey No. 43. It has a very short history. Since 1950, nine players have worn it before this year. Safety D.J. Campbell is the man who now wears that number. He was signed in the offseason. It is hard to believe he will make the roster because the Cards already have four safeties who can play. There are only two players worth mentioning who wore it before. One was safety Lonnie Young and the other was cornerback Norm Thompson. Young played for...

Notes From Saturday Morning's Walkthrough At Vikings Camp

The team is going to be having a full pads practice at 7:15 PM Central, which you'll be able to follow the action from (in text form) via the Open Thread.

Which, admittedly, would be a really good thing. It gives the Bucs a little more flexibility, and there's essentially no downside for the team -- just for the Glazers, in the form of the money...

Cowboys Training Camp 2015: Linebackers Added To The Mix

Some roster moves at the linebacker spot. The Dallas Cowboys signed plenty of linebackers this offseason, both through the draft and in free agency. Still, it wasn't enough, they needed more bodies for training camp. With Rolando McClain still rehabbing his knee, and the same with draft pick Mark Nzeocha, the depth started to thin. Keith Rivers also decided to retire from football, further depleting the depth. So the Cowboys went out and brought back some familiar faces. The Cowboys 2014 seventh-round draft pick Will Smith was signed today to help bolster the unit and get the team through...

Colin Kaepernick briefly addresses Vernon Davis, Geep Chryst, screen passes

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback held his first press conference of training camp. He did not have a whole lot to say, but did touch on a few topics of note. In particular, he was asked about mixing in more passes to running backs. He would not go into detail. Here's the full transcript. How are you doing, Colin? "Good. How are you doing?" So you've been here since Monday, what's kind of been the vibe as far as working with the young guys and what have you seen so far in those three days that you've been here? "Like you said, we're just working. Trying to get ready, trying to move in...

Chicago Bears Final 53 Man Roster Prediction

Now that I've had the chance to pour over the entire Chicago Bears roster in my Position Battles series, I'll take a stab at predicting the opening day 53 man roster. OFFENSE Quarterback (2): Jay Cutler, Jimmy Clausen I think the Bears try and get one of their 2 young QBs onto the practice squad. Runningback (4): Matt Forte, Jeremy Langford, Ka'Deem Carey, Jacquizz Rodgers If Carey doesn't show an ability to play special teams, Daniel Thomas may edge him out. Wide Receiver (5): Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, Kevin White, Marquess Wilson, A.J. Cruz (returner) Cruz may prove more overall...

Carson Palmer with no restrictions and perhaps with a stronger arm

The veteran QB will get a regular number of snaps. All eyes are on quarterback Carson Palmer entering training camp and this season, as the general feeling is the success of the team is completely dependent on his health and play. After suffering a torn ACL last season, as it was in mini-camp, he has no restrictions. He will get all his normal reps in training camp and will also get normal snaps  in the  preseason, said head coach Bruce Arians to the media on Friday after the team had its conditioning test. What that normally means is a couple of series in both the first two preseason...

Aldon Smith paid final offseason roster bonus on August 1

The San Francisco 49ers paid Aldon Smith a roster bonus on Saturday. This marked the final offseason bonus as part of Smith's restructured contract. The San Francisco 49ers kick off their first practice of training camp later today, but this also marks another notable date. Aldon Smith will receive another offseason roster bonus as part of his restructured option year contract. He received a payment of $300,000, marking his final roster bonus of the offseason. Smith restructured his contract back in March, shortly before the deal became fully guaranteed. The new deal turned his $9,754,000...

Eagles might have enough roster depth to win the Super Bowl

Let's take a look at 13 questions to see if the Eagles have enough roster depth to win a championship. Last year, Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports came up with a fun activity to determine which NFL teams have enough roster depth to contend for a Super Bowl. Kirwan made a list of 13 questions that require a positive answer in order for a team to qualify as having solid depth. The Eagles shaped up OK in last year's assessment. Philadelphia's roster has obviously gone through a lot of change since then, however. So now let's take a look at this year's roster. 1) Does the team have a backup...

How the Buccaneers are treating Jameis Winston like Doug Williams

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven't been very successful with their drafted quarterbacks over the past, well, ever. Josh Freeman had one good season before somehow losing all of his ability to not turn over a football. Trent Dilfer was never any good. Chris Simms was always Chris Simms. Vinny Testaverde had talent, and also an obscene amount of interceptions. There's one exception to that list, and that's Doug Williams, who didn't turn into a franchise quarterback only because the Bucs in their infinite penny-pinchiness refused to give him a fair contract when the USFL would. And the Bucs are...
