Let’s tour SB Nation and see what is happening around the NFL

Let’s find out what is going on around the NFL as the Fourth of July weekend approaches. The best way to do that? By checking in with the other fine football writers around SB Nation to see what they are writing about. Yep, let’s go Touring the Nation.

Of course we start with Andrew Luck

The Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback just broke the bank with a record-smashing six-year, $140 million contract. SB Nation looks at what the deal means.

It is obvious, of course, but SBN says “The market rate for elite QB play has been raised yet again.”

Oh, Johnny!

The NFL has suspended wayward quarterback Johnny Manziel four games for substance abuse.

That won’t matter if Manziel, released by the Cleveland Browns, never plays in the league again. You hate to see a young man throw his life away, though. Let’s hope Johnny Football is able to clean himself up.

Not those guys!

SB Nation says the Dallas Cowboys have the best shot of any team to go from worst to first in 2016.

None of the other three NFC East teams have a stranglehold on the division, so the door is open for the Cowboys to return to their spot at the top. Dallas is actually the betting favorite to be the division champion on Bovada.

Chance of going from last to first: 5/10
