Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens have reached an impasse with kicker Justin Tucker as he issued a public admonishment to the team regarding his contract situation.

  • Author’s Take: The Ravens went 5-11 last year, including three games lost by three or fewer points…each of which included a missed field goal by Justin Tucker.  How about we don’t get too big for our britches there son.

Buffalo BIlls: After the Philadelphia DA office declined to pursue charges against Bills running back LeSean McCoy, the league has announced that he will not face suspension for his role in a nightclub fight.

Author’s Take

: Doubt there will be much hoopla over this given the news on Brady.  However, for those that get upset there is no suspension, this does fall in line with the NFL’s policy of not overstepping the legal system in situations involving criminal charges (even though that policy isn’t always adhered to).

Chicago Bears: There has been little news to come out regarding a new contract for Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, despite today’s deadline.  That generally indicates there is no potential contract to talk about.

  • Author’s Take: The Bears reportedly don’t view Jeffery as a “#1 WR”…umm, what?

Cleveland Browns: The Browns are apparently bringing in former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson to help out at Training Camp.  Running back Isaiah Crowell made the wrong kind of headlines for a (now deleted) Twitter post that portrayed the image of a black man cutting the throat of a police officer.

On the field, the team has likely lost defensive end Desmond Bryant for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.

  • Author’s Take: Yeah, because a career malcontent and diva is exactly what you want to introduce to a rebuilding team.  I’m sure this will end well.
