With preseason training camps getting their start around the NFL, it’s a slow time for NFL news. Despite the lack of news, there is still content to be put out. Let’s take a look at what the rest of the SB Nation network is talking about.

An ode to Darrelle Revis, The Mercenary | SB Nation

Darelle Revis had quite the career in the NFL. Production did slow over the past couple of seasons, so it was time that he retired, but “Revis Island” will be missed dearly.

Training camp is underway for the Ravens and Bears | SB Nation

Football is back, well almost! We are 49 days away from the NFL opener on September 6th.

The Steelers’ offer to Le’Veon Bell is a reminder of how dumb NFL contracts can be | SB Nation

Le’Veon Bell not being able to reach a long-term deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers should excite every team around the NFL. Bell is now set to become a free agent next season and there should be a lot of interest in him once he hits the free market.

Titans’ Jurrell Casey says he’ll ‘take my fine’ and protest during the national anthem | SB Nation

I’m glad that Casey is standing up for what he believes in. Even if the NFL threatens to fine him, Casey will continue to protest.

Bell and Gurley working together for better deals | Turf Show Times

Both of these running backs deserve long-term contracts. Whether or not they get them with their current team, someone out there should give them the money they deserve.

One reason why the 49ers will beat the Seahawks at home (and one reason why they won’t) | Niners Nation

I personally believe that the 49ers will sweep the Seahawks this year. The 49ers have more talent than Seattle heading into the 2018 season.

Philadelphia Eagles rank among most valuable teams in the NFL | Bleeding Green Nation

The Golden State Warriors were also very high on this list. I wonder how much a championship helps the value of a team.

Case Keenum’s Minnesota Miracle wins ESPY Award | Mile High Report

This was one of the best sports moments in the past 20 years. I’m glad that Keenum was able to take home an ESPY for the miracle play.

Boltman Is Retiring, Auctioning Off Suit and Character | Bolts from the Blue

This is an extremely sad situation. The Chargers make the move to Los Angeles for one season and their mascot decides to quit and sell the uniform and rights to the name.

With Patrick Mahomes, optimism should be tempered with uncertainty | Arrowhead Pride

I am a huge fan of Mahomes and what he can bring to the Chiefs offense but I do think that expectations need to be tempered.
