With eye on upcoming free agents, Bengals monitor their rollover formula
How and when the Bengals get a deal done for A.J. Grene remains to be seen, one thing to take into consideration is the team's rollover space. Rollover money is the amount of cash teams set aside after their contractual obligations from the previous season have been met. The Bengals tend to save their rollover money for big extensions like with Andy Dalton and Vontaze Burfict.

Cards hire Jen Welter as first female assistant coach
The Cardinals made history Monday, announcing the hiring Jen Welter of the Indoor Football League as the NFL's first woman to hold a coaching position. A former collegiate rugby player who played 14 seasons of pro football, Welter was brought in by Bruce Arians as a training camp/preseason intern coaching inside linebackers.

NFL, NFLPA engaged in Tom Brady settlement talks
The fact that we're still talking about Deflategate with NFL training camps opening is ridiculous, which seems appropriate given how ridiculous the whole thing is.

Jadeveon Clowney to start camp on Texans' PUP list
Clowney underwent microfracture surgery back in December, and the expectation is he'll be ready for the regular-season opener. Considering that Vontaze Burfict had the same procedure a month later, that's not too encouraging for his prospects of returning for training camp. Then again, maybe Clowney isn't attacking his rehab as hard as Burfict, who looks like he's getting closer to his explosive self.

Undrafted Free Agent Hope

ESPN wonders if Junior Galette is unemployable
Recently-released Saints linebacker Junior Galette is now looking for work. He's arguably the best talent on the market right now, but his character concerns may have made him unemployable in the NFL.

How valuable is A.J. Green to the Bengals?
Coley Harvey takes a look at just how valuable A.J. Green is to the Bengals. While the team is perfectly content with letting Green play out his contract, they do want to pay him the kind of contract he deserves. They're trying to keep the ball in Green's court and let him decide when the two sides will work to get a deal done.
