MINNESOTA VIKINGS (14-4)OPEN CAMP: July 25 (rookies) http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-phil-haynes-jersey , July 28 (veterans), Eagan, MinnesotaLAST YEAR: Despite losing starting QB Sam Bradford after season opener and rookie RB Dalvin Cook in fourth game, both to knee injuries, Vikings rode backup QB Case Keenum and league-leading defense to second-most wins in franchise history. Beat Saints on last-second 61-yard TD pass from Keenum to WR Stefon Diggs in play dubbed ”Minneapolis Miracle,” before being trounced by Eagles in NFC championship game to miss chance of becoming NFL’s first Super Bowl host to play in game.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, QB Kirk Cousins, DT Sheldon Richardson, PK Daniel Carlson, CB/KR Mike Hughes, WR Kendall Wright, OG Tom Compton, QB Trevor Siemian, OT Brian O’Neill.IMPORTANT LOSSES: Keenum, Bradford, RB Jerick McKinnon, RG Joe Berger, WR Jarius Wright, DT Tom Johnson, DT Shamar Stephen, QB Teddy Bridgewater, OL Jeremiah Sirles.CAMP NEEDS: Cousins must continue to build chemistry with Diggs, WR Adam Thielen, TE Kyle Rudolph and rest of receivers, but even more important is establishment of healthy line in front of him. RT Rashod Hill will be in spotlight after taking most of first-team reps in spring practices while Mike Remmers moved to RG, and C Pat Elflein has catching up to do with Cousins on cadence and calls; Elflein was out of team drills all offseason in recovery from shoulder, ankle injuries. Cook looks to step back in as starting tailback 10 months after ACL surgery. First-round draft pick Hughes will have opportunity to earn jobs as primary KR and nickel CB.EXPECTATIONS: As high as ever, with fully guaranteed contract for Cousins and under-radar signing of Richardson to supplement one of league’s most stacked rosters. With Diggs Ugo Amadi Jersey , DE Danielle Hunter and LB Anthony Barr on expiring contracts and handful of defense’s stars nearing, at, or over 30, time is now for team’s first title. Repeating last year’s record won’t be easy, with questions remaining on offensive line, where Berger’s retirement created opening, and stiffer schedule that includes road trips to face Rams, Eagles, Patriots and Seahawks.—DETROIT LIONS (9-7)OPEN CAMP: July 27, Allen Park, MichiganLAST YEAR: Early and late-season slides knocked team out of playoff contention and cost coach Jim Caldwell job. QB Matthew Stafford led pass-dependent offense with 1,000-yard WRs Marvin Jones and Golden Tate. CB Darius Slay emerged as one of league’s best in coverage.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Coach Matt Patricia, RB LeGarrette Blount, RB Kerryon Johnson, TE Luke Willson, C Frank Ragnow, DT Sylvester Williams, LB Christian Jones, LB Devon Kennard.IMPORTANT LOSSES: Coach Jim Caldwell, TE Eric Ebron, DT Haloti Ngata, LB Tahir Whitehead.CAMP NEEDS: Developing running game with two new backs and rookie center. Learning new defense with first-year head coach and new coordinator Paul Pasqualoni.EXPECTATIONS: Making playoffs must be goal after firing coach coming off third winning season in four years. Third-year GM Bob Quinn wants team to become tougher, especially in short yardage and near goal line.—GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)OPEN CAMP: July 26, Green Bay, WisconsinLAST YEAR: Finished under .500 and out of playoffs for first time since 2008. Offense struggled with QB Aaron Rodgers sidelined for seven games with broken collarbone. Defense plagued by porous secondary and lack of consistent pass rush. Injuries ravaged cornerback position again.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: GM Brian Gutekunst, offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, QB DeShone Kizer, TE Jimmy Graham Dwayne Haskins Jersey , TE Marcedes Lewis, CB Tramon Williams, rookie CBs Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, DL Muhammad Wilkerson.IMPORTANT LOSSES: retired GM Ted Thompson, defensive coordinator Dom Capers, S Morgan Burnett, WR Jordy Nelson, G Jahri Evans, TE Richard Rodgers.CAMP NEEDS: Find receiver to replace Nelson. Packers took three wideouts in middle rounds of draft, but returnees Geronimo Allison and Trevor Davis could have early edge. With Rodgers sidelined, Nelson’s production tailed off last year, and Packers let him go in offseason and brought in Graham to provide big target over middle. At their best, Rodgers and Nelson were one of top combos in league. Packers need to develop pass-rush depth behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, and hope that Alexander and Jackson can learn from Williams to help in coverage.EXPECTATIONS: Packers are always threat as long as Rodgers is healthy. Last season served as painful lesson of what team needs to shore up defensive deficiencies that could be masked by their gifted quarterback. At worst, expect return to playoffs – assuming Rodgers is healthy – following offseason full of changes in Titletown.—CHICAGO BEARS (5-11)OPEN CAMP: July 19, Olivet Nazarene University, Bourbonnais, IllinoisLAST YEAR: Bears finished last in NFC North for fourth straight year, then fired coach John Fox after three losing seasons. GM Ryan Pace got contract extension through 2021 and hired Andy Reid protege Matt Nagy as head coach, hoping he gets most out of QB Mitchell Trubisky. Wide receivers were big weakness, with Cameron Meredith (left knee) out for season and Kevin White (shoulder) missing most of it. Chicago’s leading receiver was Kendall Wright – now with Minnesota – with 59 receptions for 614 yards. Bears had formidable RB tandem with Jordan Howard (1,122 yards) and Tarik Cohen (370 yards rushing, 353 receiving), though Howard struggled to catch passes. Defense ranked 10th overall despite injuries to several key players, including LB Leonard Floyd.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Coach Matt Nagy, offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, WR Allen Robinson, TE Trey Burton, WR Taylor Gabriel David Long Jersey , K Cody Parkey, rookie LB Roquan Smith, rookie WR Anthony Miller, rookie G/C James Daniels.IMPORTANT LOSSES: Fox, Meredith, LB Pernell McPhee, LB Willie Young.CAMP NEEDS: Trubisky needs time to develop rapport with new targets, particularly Robinson, coming back from torn left ACL in last year’s opener with Jacksonville. Something else to watch: G Kyle Long’s health. Three-time Pro Bowler is working way back from ankle, neck and shoulder surgeries.EXPECTATIONS: Bears, coming off fourth straight season with 10 or more losses, haven’t finished above .500 since 2012. Chicago has one playoff appearance since 2006 Super Bowl appearance. Bears are banking on Trubisky after surrounding him with playmakers and coaches they think will help him reach his potential. Chicago also added possible cornerstone at inside linebacker by drafting Smith, who led Georgia to national championship game last season.— ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)Brian Daboll has far too much on his plate to have time to reflect on how the Buffalo Bills new offensive coordinator’s career has brought him home.There’s a new series of plays to install, players to evaluate and, most important, a new young hope at quarterback in first-round draft pick Josh Allen to groom.So forget asking Daboll what it’s like to be working with the team he grew up in suburban Buffalo rooting for, or being on a staff headed by Sean McDermott, the former safety whom Daboll coached at William and Mary in 1997.”Just day by day,” he said in addressing reporters at the Bills facility for the first time since being hired in January.”You’re really grinding on that particular day and trying to get focused, whether it’s later on with the players or the next day, so you just kind of stay in the flow.”And on Thursday, Daboll’s past was nowhere near the forefront of his attention.”No. I’ve got my two-minute in my mind right now,” he said, referring to having his offense run the two-minute drill in practice for the first time this spring.The 43-year-old is entering his 18th NFL season and 22nd overall, including college.It’s a career in which Daboll has won five Super Bowl titles as an assistant during two separate stints with the New England Patriots. And he’s coming off a season in which he oversaw a run-heavy Crimson Tide offense that helped Alabama win the national title.The championship experience was re-affirming for Daboll in proving he can adapt the offense to a team’s strengths while also gaining a better appreciation of dealing with younger players.”The college game is a little different than the National Football League so I learned a lot there,” he said. ”You can’t put as much on them.”It’s a lesson that will certainly carry over to Buffalo, where Daboll takes over an offense essentially rebuilding from scratch, with the exception of veteran star running back LeSean McCoy.Buffalo’s undergoing yet another switch at quarterback after third-year starter Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland in March.There’s a three-way competition for the starting job led by Allen http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/bobby-evans-jersey , the raw strong-armed rookie out of Wyoming who was selected with the seventh pick in the draft. It’s rounded out by AJ McCarron, who spent his first four NFL seasons as Andy Dalton’s backup in Cincinnati, and second-year player Nathan Peterman.The offensive line is in transition after losing three starters. And the receiver position lacks established depth behind Kelvin Benjamin.Benjamin said Daboll is putting the onus on the offensive veterans such as himself, McCoy and tight end Charles Clay to lead by example.”He holds you accountable,” Benjamin said. ”I think they’re giving the young guys a little bit more leeway. But us three, I think we really have to focus on it a little bit more and just knowing our position and even knowing other people’s positions.”Daboll said it’s premature to project who will fill out the starting jobs, and that particularly includes quarterback.”All we’re trying to take is one step at a time,” he said. ”It’s so early in the process right now. I think that’ll sort itself out as time goes on.”McCarron and Peterman are splitting time with the starters, while Allen, for now, is working with the third stringers.Allen’s inconsistencies were apparent during the two-minute drill.He telegraphed his third pass, which was intercepted by cornerback Breon Borders. During his second chance, Allen completed five of seven attempts, including one dropped pass, and capped the drive by hitting Cam Phillips in the right corner of the end zone.Daboll is Buffalo’s fifth coordinator in five years. He replaced Rick Dennison who was fired after one season in which the Bills finished 29th in yards – mostly because of a popgun passing attack – and 22nd in points.Daboll was actually born in Welland, Ontario, just across the river from Buffalo. But he quickly relocated to West Seneca, New York, where he was brought up by his maternal grandparents and developed a passion for football and the Bills.”I know it’s different being at home, being raised here. There’s a lot of people, and I’m one of them, that love this team,” Daboll said. ”I’m just excited to be here.”NOTES: TE Logan Thomas will miss the final two weeks of spring practices after having surgery to repair a minor knee injury. … The Bills have four voluntary practices next week, and then hold a three-day mandatory minicamp from June 12-14.—
