For the past few years, NFL Network has started to release their top 100 players list before the start of training camp. The folks at NFL Network claim that the players do the voting and that they have nothing to do with the rankings.
The San Francisco 49ers have plenty of issues that have to figure out once training camp begins. One of those issues is who will be the starting quarterback for the 2016 season.

Before the start of Game 3 on Wednesday, many wondered if Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love would be available to play. Love caught an elbow to the head by Golden State Warriors forward Harrison Barnes, which sent him to the locker room.
Throughout the offseason, the Miami Dolphins have made it known that they are very high on running back Jay Ajayi. He believes he can be great and so do the Dolphins, who let Lamar Miller leave and sign with the Houston Texans.
A few months ago, one of the best players to ever put on a Detroit Lions uniform decided to call it a career. After a lot of speculation, wide receiver Calvin Johnson decided it was time to retire from the NFL.
The Tennessee Titans are hoping that quarterback Marcus Mariota takes that next step this season. Mariota was decent last season, but the Titans want his passing numbers to go up. Mariota’s skill set is very unique, which new offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie can’t wait to take advantage of.

We have heard time and time again from New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony that he wanted to see some changes. Even though he was never asked for his opinion on who the Knicks should bring in as head coach, it seems like Anthony doesn’t have a problem with Jeff Hornacek getting the nod.
The New England Patriots have started their mandatory mini-camp this week but all the talk was about one player. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was at the Patriots facility on Tuesday, but didn’t participate in the practice.
Going into the offseason, the Indianapolis Colts knew that they wanted to get quarterback Andrew Luck to sign a long-term contract extension. Both sides have been negotiating for months, but no deal has been made yet.
