Tom Brady announced almost two weeks ago that he was giving up his fight, and would end pursuit of exoneration in Deflate-gate: The Saga, meaning he’d be suspended for the first four games of this season. Which means the New England Patriots know that third-year backup Jimmy Garoppolo will be starting those games, and he must get more first-team reps during training camp than he normally does. Garoppolo, a second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois who has just 31 attempts in his first two seasons, will be at the helm for a not-too-easy quartet of games to open the season: at Arizona, then home against the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.
From Jimmy Garoppolo to Blaine Gabbert, here's the most intriguing thing to watch for all 32 teams in training camp. The wait is over, and NFL training camps are finally here. After weeks with little NFL news of consequence, we've finally reached the portion of the offseason where fans can get a glimpse of how their favorite teams are shaping up for the coming season.
