First, a quick note that the NFL is now in what is one of its few real down times of the year — the five-week break from mini-camp to the start of training camp.
So things will slow down on the blog a bit for a few weeks, as well, as we take vacations and all that. We’ll get any news up quickly, and there will still be stuff here regularly. Just not quite at the pace of the regular season. If you notice some dark days on here, it’s nothing more than that.
For now, a few links. …
