NFL defender reveals one trait that makes Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert elite
“I can honestly say that seeing their different habits and what makes each of them successful is very different from each other. But they all carry one similar characteristic and that’s their preparation for the game,” Fehoko said. “Each of those three during my time playing with them, and even Justin now, they all take their preparation very seriously.

2022 NFL season: Which notable records could fall? What milestones might be reached?
Brady reversed course on retirement and will return to the Bucs in 2022 with a chance to reach yet another milestone previously thought to be untouchable: 100,000 career passing yards. Combining his NFL-record regular season (84,520) and postseason (13,049) yardage totals, Brady enters the season with 97,569 career pass yards -- 2,431 shy of 100,000 in his career.

NFL roundup: Latest league news from Friday, July 1
Jurgens played center and guard during his four years at the University of Nebraska and his versatility as an interior lineman will be beneficial for the Eagles' depth chart perhaps as early as his rookie season. However, the 22-year-old was heavily scouted by Eagles center Jason Kelce for what hopes to be a smooth succession.
