Browns CB Sheldon Brown is trying to help his young teammates become responsible; “You have to make up your mind early and I think it’s important to be a professional,” Brown said.  “You can’t be one of the guys and be cool, this and that and make it in this league.  This is your livelihood.  This is how you support your family and friends and it’s very important that you’re held accountable to your teammates.”

The good news?  The folks at the Cowboys’ officials website have identified 10 position battles to watch in Dallas.  The bad news?  They present it in the always-annoying multi-click slideshow format.

Redskins G.M. Bruce Allen has been visiting with fans, and they all want to know about is the man known as RG3.

So far, QB Mike Kafka is the clear choice for No. 2 in Philly.

The Vikings have more time at training camp this year because the dorms in which the team stays will be demolished after the Vikings leave.  (There’s a Love Boat joke lurking in there, somewhere.)

    When will Tebow understand that 75% of the people that are Tebowing are making fun of him?

    Not putting a stop to show boating is what lead to all this primadonna-look-at-me crap amongst wide receivers.

    I have no problem with the school stopping it before it got started.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is from Harvard, has a long-term multi-million dollar contract and threw for 4,000 yards last year. David Lee coached the Miami Dolphins qb’s the last few years. Who’s teaching whom?

    Donald Driver could make a fortune in advertising. But I have a feeling that even though he could go the Payton Manning route and promote anything and everything – he already has successful regional campaigns behind him for companies like McDonalds – I think he’ll be a lot pickier, since most of the ads we see from him are PSAs.

    He could also be one of the few ex-players that would do very well in broadcasting. That may just come down to how much he wants to travel and/or whether he wants to relocate and to where.

    Just don’t go to ESPN, D. You are way too classy for that organization.

    RGIII has, through no fault of his own, the most hyped rookie QB in NFL history. You can’t read the ESPN, CBS, FOX, website or listen to Sirius NFL radio without getting almost hourly updates on RGIII. I feel for the kid, he has expectations laid on him that are so high he can’t help but be seen as a failure, no matter how good he really turns out to be.
