The start of training camp officially signals the end of the NFL offseason. How did each team fare in free agency and the draft? Chris Burke and Doug Farrar examined each team's body of work, breaking down the best acquisitions and most harmful departures while handing out grades. Find all their report cards below. (Note: Our offseason report cards were rolled out over the course of May, June and July, meaning late acquisitions may not be reflected.)

The runaway winners of the AFC North last year didn't improve much on paper.
The key for Buffalo will most certainly be Sammy Watkins' development.
The Broncos opened up their checkbook, possibly sacrificing long-term success.

They need to address the off-field problems before they can return to any sort of glory.
