Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 games

Titans developing a reputation

Marcus Mariota is the only remaining 1st-round pick unsigned from this year's NFL draft and that's not surprising. The Titans will be the last team to sign their 1st-round pick for the third straight year and were the second-to-last to sign their 1st-rounder in 2012 (WR Kendall Wright).

Can Cam Newton take the next step in '15?

Writes KC Joyner: "He has the skills, but he needs good blockers and pass-catchers in order to fully realize his potential. The Panthers have most of those two elements in place, so if they can just get their wide receiving corps to step up to a higher level, Newton will have a chance to prove himself worthy of being in the $100 million quarterback club."
