• I'm sure we're going to talk a lot more about this in the coming days, weeks and months, but with the abbreviated offseason, the beginning of the NFL season figures to feature some ugly, ugly football. Advantage, defenses and more veteran teams with lower roster turnover.

• The Jaguars are going to have to spend about $35 million to fulfill their obligation to meet the salary cap floor. Expect most of that to go to defense. Here's a list of what they need and what's available.

• Here's a list of fellows who could maybe expect a call from the Seattle Seahawks.

• The Minnesota Vikings, meanwhile, are a few million over the cap, and have to figure out what to do with Chad Greenway, Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian. Adrian Peterson is heading into the last year of his rookie deal, too.

• The Green Bay Packers also have some players hitting the free-agent market, and they're all more attractive now because it says "Super Bowl champion" on their résumé.

• For the Tennessee Titans, safety Chris Hope could be on the chopping block because of his $7 million 2011 salary. Here, Chris Hope makes the case that he's worth it.

• Mike Klis of the Denver Post goes through the Denver Broncos to-do list.

• It's a really bad year to be an undrafted free agent. Eventually, I think everyone who deserves a look (and there are some good ones) will get it, but they might have to scrap, claw and hang on more than undrafted free agents and other years. There's just not as much time, not as many reps available, and not having had free agency yet, teams don't even know exactly what they need.

• Peter King tweets that HBO will not have a "Hard Knocks" this year. Frowny face.

• What did Detroit Lions DE Turk McBride get into during the lockout? Geology, Computer Science and English 435. He is now a college graduate.
