Breakfast links: RG III recovery rolls on
By Dan Graziano
You can add Kirk Cousins to the list of people raving about how well Robert Griffin III's recovery from knee surgery is going, even if that might mean Cousins begins the season as a backup instead of the fill-in starter.
Last week's news about Sam Huff stepping aside has sparked some debate in Washington about what the Redskins' radio broadcast team should look like moving forward.
New York Giants
Justin Tuck says he feels "more alive in a football sense" this year, which sounds nice. Ultimately, June talk won't mean a thing, and whether Tuck can play at a high level this year will have a lot to do with the Giants' success and his own future in New York.
Yes, there has been some interest from the Giants in fullback Vonta Leach. Yes, this likely means they're more concerned about Henry Hynoski's injury than they've admitted. No, I don't think Leach is going to be a Giant. I think he's going to be a Dolphin.
Will Allen hopes he can bring some of the Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive mentality to the Cowboys' defensive backs room.
ESPNDallas.com's position series continues with running back, where DeMarco Murray must stay healthy or Joseph Randle should get a chance to prove whether he's the superior long-term option.
If Matt Barkley beats out two more experienced quarterbacks to win the starter's job, it won't be the first time he's ever done that.
Jeremy Maclin's eyes are wide open to what this year means for him -- a chance to cash in with a big new contract if he can stay healthy and play to his first-round pedigree.
