Now that NFL training camps are in full swing and as teams start their preseason schedules this week, attention starts turning away from free agency and toward how existing rosters will get ready for the 2015 season.

Of course, there are still moves to be made, especially if players get injured during practice. Teams expected to contend once again will see if their strengths have carried over from last year; those seeking turn around efforts will get another opportunity to see what improvements are possible. And unfortunate injuries are always impossible to predict, forcing teams to scramble ahead of the regular season.

So, what’s the latest on these teams and players? Check back often as we update below with the latest scoops on transactions, news and rumors.
