New, comments
Around the league, teams are getting ready for training camp.
Around the league, teams are getting ready for training camp.

Here are the latest headlines from the 31 other SBNation NFL blogs on a slow news day. As usual, the headlines are sorted by division for your convenience, starting with our friends from the NFC East:

NFC East

Eagles - The Linc - Vick Sees Giants As Team To Beat - Bleeding Green Nation
Vick has been awfully talkative these last few days. That might come back to bite him.

Giants - Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team: Cornerback - Big Blue View
Giants fans vote on who the two cornerbacks for the Big Blue View Preseason NFC East All-Star Team should be. Predictably, the 2011 team that gave up the fourth-most passing yards in the league takes both spots.

Redskins - How Many Are You Keeping - Safeties - Hogs Haven
Hogs Haven asks its readers how many of the six safeties currently on the roster they would take onto the final 53-man roster. "None of them" was not an option in the poll.

NFC North

Packers - Green Bay Packers Coach Mike McCarthy Takes Subtle Jab At Jim Schwartz - Acme Packing Company
This could get interesting: A beginning pissing contest between McCarthy and Schwartz. Somebody get the popcorn ready.

Lions - Corey Williams Was Arrested On DWI Charge In June 2011 - Pride Of Detroit
There have been six arrests involving Lions players this offseason, and now news of another one has come out, albeit from last year. How much longer can Schwartz deflect the responsibility for this?

Vikings - For Once, Somebody Finally Said 'It's About The Money' - Daily Norseman
Good take on Favre's motivation for signing up with the Vikings.

Bears - NFL Begins Training Replacement Referees - Windy City Gridiron
In the end, one side will blink in this labor dispute.

NFC South

Saints - It's Roger Goodell's World, We Only Live In It - Canal Street Chronicles
Get over it already.

Panthers - Carolina Panthers 2012 Player Profile: LB Jason Williams - Cat Scratch Reader
Remember him?

Falcons - Recent Results Show Team Skill Is Only A Partial Influence On Outcome - The Falcoholic
"How good" a team is isn't necessarily the end-all solution for determining which team will win. Crazy things happen. Miracles happen.

Buccaneers - Bucs Complete Signings - Bucs Nation
The No. 7 pick, Mark Barron, has signed his contract.

NFC West

49ers - Managing Expectations vs. Holding None - Niners Nation
There's an assumption in SF that their 2012 rookie class won't see a lot of playing time this year. This article post-rationalizes that as a good thing. Remember how the Cowboys rationalized the 2009 draft class as a special teams class? Same principle here.

Cardinals - In An Offseason Full Of Legal Mishaps, The Arizona Cardinals Continue To Stay Professional - Revenge of the Birds
I love these kind of holier-than-thou articles. They always have a way of coming back and biting you in the behind.

Seahawks - On Sideline-to-Sideline Speed at Linebacker - Field Gulls
Interesting look at the importance of 'team speed,' particularly at the linebacker position.

Rams - St. Louis Rams Tight Ends: Who are YOU Keeping? - Turf Show Times
The Rams currently have eight (!!!) tight ends on their roster. There are bound to be a lot of TEs released from that group, but I don't think there's a candidate for the Cowboys there.

AFC East

Bills - Buffalo Bills Training Camp Battles, No. 5: Vince Young vs. Tyler Thigpen - Buffalo Rumblings
One day the league will wake up and realize that Andy Reid's used backup QBs are hot garbage.

Jets - Tim Tebow Continues To Work On His Throwing Motion - Gang Green Nation
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Patriots - Five Patriots Rookies Fail Physicals - Pats Pulpit
That's a surprisingly high number. How many players will fail the Cowboys' physical?

Dolphins - Miami Dolphins Projected Offensive Depth Chart - Pre-Training Camp Edition - The Phinsider
I don't know much about the Dolphins, but I'm surprised to see Tannehill penciled in as a reserve, and not as the starter.

AFC North

Ravens - Raven Are Trimming the Fat - No, Really! - Baltimore Beat Down
I kid you not: The Ravens' ideas for getting their players to slim down include replacing a chest full of ice cream treats with a soft ice machine and moving pizza day from Friday to Monday. Even my 11-year old son burst out laughing when I told him about that.

Steelers - Weekend Check Down: The Top Stories of the Week - Behind the Steel Curtain
The lastest Steelers news: "Steelers don't make the news."

Bengals - Ten Reasons For Bengals Fans To Be Thankful Going Into 2012 Training Camp - Cincy Jungle
Number nine on this top-ten list of things Bengals fans should be thankful for is their free agent class, featuring both Terence Newman and Pacman Jones.

Browns - With Luck and Griffin Signed, Trent Richardson Should be Next - Dawgs By Nature
Just like the Cowboys, the Browns are looking to sign their top pick this week.

AFC South

Colts - Report: Andrew Luck's Contract Four Years, $22 Million - Stampede Blue
This is the latest post on Stampede Blue and dates from Thursday. One of the many reasons to be thankful you're a Cowboys fan: We've had 10 posts on BTB since the Luck post was published

Texans - To The Tape Mobile! A Look At NFL Rewind's ALL-22 Feature - Battle Red Blog
A first look at what the All-22 film could do for blogging ...

Jaguars - Justin Blackmon, Jaguars To Begin Serious Negotiations Soon - Big Cat Country
Everybody's scurrying to get their remaining picks signed.

Titans - Matt Hasselbeck on His Relationship with Jake Locker - Music City Miracles
"One of the most interesting things about the Titans quarterback battle is the fact that Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker are actually really good friends."

How sweet. Oh look, a unicorn ...

AFC West

Broncos - 2012 Denver Broncos Training Camp Preview: Tight Ends - Mile High Report
I'm making like the Cowboys and watching the tight end situation on other teams very closely. Could a TE currently on the Bronocs roster end up with the Cowboys?

Chargers - San Diego Chargers Sign DT Aubrayo Franklin - Bolts From The Blue
Not a bad player to have as a backup at NT.

Raiders - Raiders immediate big free agent plans means ‘cap jail' in 2013 - Silver And Black Pride
Here's a team that's already in cap trouble - for 2013.

Chiefs - Clearing Up Misconceptions On Kyle Orton And The Chiefs - Arrowhead Pride
A cute, endearing attempt to construct a Chiefs-friendly narrative for why Orton left Kansas City for Dallas.
