NFL training camp has officially begun and brings the league's 32 teams one step closer to the start of the 2019 season.
The Ravens, Panthers, Browns, Lions, Packers, Texans, Colts, Jaguars, Chargers, Dolphins, Giants, Jets, Patriots, Eagles, Seahawks and Redskins all opened training camp on Thursday. While several veterans joined their teams' rookies for the workouts, other big names did not show. Melvin Gordon informed the Chargers that who would not report to training camp until a new contract is agreed upon. Trent Williams informed the Redskins of the same.
As the remaining half of the league is set to begin training camp on Thursday or Friday, all eyes will be on Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is also seeking a new deal. Elliott has been reportedly considering a holdout as his contract extension is negotiated and did not board the team plane to Los Angeles on Thursday. Official reporting to Cowboys camp begins on Friday.
