Luckily, there is nothing stopping that from happening. Wednesday's "What we learned" will have actual football information from all 16 NFC teams. Let's do this.
Arizona Cardinals: Everyone predicting improvement for the Cardinals should consider all the changes in their defense. Inside linebacker is one example. They are counting on Kevin Minter and free agent pickup Sean Weatherspoon to start, but Weatherspoon is already struggling with injuries like he did so often in Atlanta. He experienced a setback in his hamstring injury, and is out at least another week.
St. Louis Rams: The details of Nick Foles' contract were interesting. He is fully guaranteed $6.75 million in 2016, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. That means he'll be a member of the Rams next season even if this season is a disaster. ... Rapoport also snuck in some surprising news about No. 10 overall pick Todd Gurley: The Rams don't expect him to be ready for the first 2-3 games of the season.
San Francisco 49ers: Keep an eye on NaVorro Bowman and Jerryd Hayne in San Francisco's opener. It will be Bowman's first action since his knee injury in the NFC Championship game against the Seahawks. It's insane to think how much has changed for the 49ers since then. Hayne, the rugby star, is expected to get a lot chances to touch the ball to build on an impressive training camp.
Carolina Panthers:Jerricho Cotchery started 14 games last season, including the team's Divisional Round loss to Seattle. But he no longer seems guaranteed to make the team after Devin Funchess' drafting. ... With all the contracts for linebackers going down of late, Luke Kuechly could be next in line. The Charlotte Observer believes there's a 50-50 chance it happens before the season.
New Orleans Saints: Two names that have received a lot of buzz in camp: Rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony and receiver Brandon Coleman. It's possible that Coleman wins the No. 3 receiver job over Nick Toon. And Anthony could be one of the key players on the entire defense. ... Anthony was the No. 31 overall pick. The No. 13 overall pick, tackle Andrus Peat, has not enjoyed a strong camp according to Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: After an uneven start to camp, NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported Wednesday that Jameis Winston is starting to string positive outings together in practice. ... Louis Murphy missed the first 11 days of camp. He was the favorite to be the slot receiver. Guys like Kenny Bell, Rannell Hall and second-year pro Robert Herron are now contenders for the job. This is not good news for Winston.
New York Giants: The Giants listed Bennett Jackson as a starter at safety for the preseason opener. Jeromy Miles is also getting a crack at the job with Jackson taking snaps at nickel cornerback. This could be the weakest safety position in the NFL. ... Victor Cruz will not play the team's preseason opener as the Giants remain careful with his recovery. ... At this point, it looks like Rashad Jennings' "starter" title will be nominal. We'd expect a close split in snaps between him and Shane Vereen, with Andre Williams' role also growing.
"We're just doing some different things to get different parts of my body activated and strengthen certain areas," Murray explained to PhillyMag.com.
