QB competition unnecessary for Bucs

Jameis Winston took part in his first day of training camp 24 hours after being named the Tampa Bay starter. And Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas says the clear distinction of who's the starter will serve Tampa Bay well.


Dallas' Lee working back from torn ACL

Cowboys LB Sean Lee was limited in his first work in pads since Dec. 2013, but that was part of plan. “Everything is fine,” Lee said. “I’m just trusting the trainers. They’ve got a progression plan for me that is working from Day 1 and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. But I think being in pads for the first time in a long time, they just want to progress me a certain way and it’ll be good.” (via Todd Archer)

Nicks: Whisenhunt’s scheme better fit

Titans WR Hakeem Nicks didn’t do much with Andrew Luck in 2014 but said it wasn’t about the QB -- it was about the scheme. Ken Whisenhunt’s system in Tennessee will be better for him than Pep Hamilton’s was in Indy, he said. "It's more one-on-one, trips backside, vertical throw, shallow-cross game, that's more of my style if you look at my past history, where I excelled," Nicks said. (via Paul Kuharsky)

Just knowing how to feel, how I might feel after a couple of days in a row, the typical sorenesses that come along with the recovery from this surgery and all that."
