NFL rumors: Latest news around training camp, injuries, free agency

Thursday August 6th, 2015

Now that NFL training camps are finally under way, 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.
