BBAO: Jahvid Best impresses Schwartz

By ESPN.com staff

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Chicago Bears

ChicagoBears.com started a video series covering the team’s rookie minicamp. The first installment features rookies Corey Wootton, Zeke Markshausen, Josh Moore and J’Marcus Webb.

Detroit Lions

The Lions placed defensive end Copeland Bryan on the injured reserve list with a knee injury.

Coach Jim Schwartz liked what he saw from versatile first-round pick Jahvid Best at a recent minicamp. Schwartz: "We've used him as a wide receiver. We've used him in the slot. We've used him as a running back. We've ran the ball, thrown the ball. He's been exposed to everything. He's a good, smart player. That's why we drafted him."

Green Bay Packers

Charles Woodson thinks Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best in the league.

The man convicted of robbing and beating former Packers receiver Javon Walker was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole.

ESPNMilwaukee's Jason Wilde talks with offensive lineman Allen Barbre, who lost his job in the starting lineup and will be in a battle just to make the Packers' roster this summer.

Minnesota Vikings

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald fully expects Brett Favre to return this season, but he wouldn't mind if he didn't.
