NFL Training Camp sites ‘rookie/veteran reporting dates’

Like every NFL season there is a lot of whats if’s, predictions on win/loss records, divisional and conference champions.  2015 will bring the same drama and much more, starting with the historical moment as the first women official takes the field.  How will fans accept her? Will there be a uproar on her first bad call? All indications are Sarah Thomas the first female official will be a good official, but if not will the NFL use the hook and replace her? This will be interesting to track.

With less than 15 days before rookies report to camp, the question is who has the chance of becoming Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year?  Will QB Jameis Winston lead the Bucs to a winning season?  Raiders WR Amari Cooper is the most polished of the bunch, but will he have more yards and touchdowns then Nelson Agholor (Eagles) and Kevin White (Bears)?  How much will WR Tyler Lockett contribute as a slot machine, adding another weapon for Russell Wilson.  The Seahawks will receive instant return production from the former K-State All-American.  Rams drafted RB Todd Gurley despite ACL injury, when will he be ready and will NFC West defenses (Seattle, Arizona, 49ers)  be ready for this big man who brings tons of positional attributes and skill set to the division.

Dallas drafted a player that dropped like a rock in talented DPR/OLB Randy Gregory, will he walk the line for 20 weeks?  Does his skill set transfer to the NFL game? With the 2015 draft loaded with designated pass rushers, Broncos Shane Ray had his own problems a few days before the draft, Jaguars Dante Fowler blown ACL during rookie mini-camp.  Who is the lock for NFL Defensive Rookie of the year, Falcons Vic Beasley?  2014 NFL DROY went to Rams DT Aaron Donald, I’m looking inside in 2015 at Bears DT Eddie Goldman, Browns DT Danny Shelton or Jets DE Leonard Williams.  Keep an eye on Giants DB Landon Collins on the back-end!

Contractual issues during the off season continue and will most likely lead us right into training camp with Seattle’s Russell Wilson contemplating football or baseball, or both and possibly not playing in Seattle…Not!.  Will he play for the 1.5 million in 2015?, will the Seahawks have to tag him into the future or will Hawks front office and Team Wilson get a deal done before eleventh hour of training camp. Cowboys difference maker WR Dez Bryant is threatening a hold out, I feel he will be a no show.  Owner/GM Jerry Jones has a few days to move money around under the cap, re-working contracts in-order to sign his extremely talented diva to a long term deal, Dez doesn’t want the tag!

This off-season saw the NFL vs. NFLPA going head to head on both suspensions and appeals.  Deflate-Gate was the main story line since the Wells report was published.  How many games will Tom Brady serve because of his involvement in deflate-gate?  Will he sue the NFL? Cowboys Pro Bowl DE Greg Hardy received a 10 game suspension and currently awaits his appeal seeking major reduction in games.

The 2015 training camp and NFL season is only days away, to steal a phrase from Former NFL LB Bart Scott “Cant Wait”.
