Five teams to hold rookie minicamps this week

AP

Off the field, league observers await the NFL’s next move after the release of the Wells Report on the Patriots’ alleged football deflation in the AFC Championship game in January.

On the field, the upcoming week could be fairly quiet around the league.

The majority of teams had rookie minicamps over the weekend and will not have organized workouts this week. However, five clubs — New Orleans, San Diego, San Francisco, Tennessee and Washington — will have their organized rookie workouts late in the week. All but San Francisco will start on Friday and end Sunday; the 49ers, meanwhile, will start Saturday and end Monday.

Of the teams working out their first-year players, the Titans figure to draw the most attention as quarterback Marcus Mariota gets his first NFL reps. The Chargers will also be a team to watch after holding on to quarterback Philip Rivers and trading up for running back Melvin Gordon in Round One.

Of course, if the NFL announces a #DeflateGate decision this Friday . . . well, there might be just a tad less attention paid to Mariota’s completion percentage in practice drills.

  1. Good job “holding on” to Rivers. He was supposed to get cut not too long ago for being a turnover machine, but that never happened, either.

  3. And all 5 teams have NO SHOT at making the playoffs!

    But God’s Team will find a way

    The San Francisco 49ers are continuing a dynasty

    Minimum 5 rings in the next 8-10 years

    13-3 and a home SB Championship this year

    We make boats to ride on the tears of the haters

    Colin Kaepernick is God’s Quarterback

    We are God’s Team!

  4. These 5 teams are at the top of the list for teams that need the most work. Makes sense that the Packers haven’t started yet.

    On our way to another championship. Not much stands in our way.

  5. Pound Sign: Hash tags are for twitter, they serve no purpose on message boards.

    Pound Sign: 28 more teams have it better than Santa Clara.

  6. After last weekend the fans of these teams are probably more worried about hearing the term “ACL” than any news coming out of camp.

    The pre-internet days of football we duller. News came at a trickle. But they were far less terrifying as well.

  7. Are “Carl Gray” and “logical voice” the same person, just making outlandish claims to see how many people they can enrage? It has to be made up because the claims they make are ridiculous…

  8. That isn’t a Packer fan, it’s a Viking troll, just to let you know. Some people have no lives. But would you, if your team sucked as bad as the Vikings?

  9. What’s great about the NFL is that most teams have a shot every year. Every team get 45 players on gameday and gets to spend the same amount of money. Every team gets injuries and every team has good and bad bounces along the way. Last time I checked the Saints had a HOF QB and a pretty good track record over the last 9 years for winning, um, even a SB. Anyone who says any team has NO SHOT is a moron, and saying the Saints have NO SHOT at the playoffs is plain ignorant. Of course they do. Vegas gives them similar odds as anyone else.

  10. “Colin Kaepernick is God’s Quarterback.we are Gods team”

    Maybe you have been living in exile or under a rock but Jerry Jones has already picked that title for his Boys long ago though God hasnt been good to his team reaching the Super Bowl in decades.

  11. Hopefully the Redskins and the New Orleans teams have good camps. Both need to show something but for different reasons.

  12. I am very interested on seeing how Mariota does playing for Wissenhut. The kid never took one snap under center in a 4 year college career and they take him second overall? Will find out but he doesn’t seem like the correct fit.

    Based on his coaching style and track record attempting to develop young QBs, I’d say it’s Coach Whisenhunt who isn’t the fit–not Mariota.
