Alterraun Verner is already working with Akeem Ayers to get the rookie ready for his first NFL training camp. Even better news: the article mentions that Verner got a copy of the new playbook during that two day period where the lockout was off, so he and Ayers are actually working on Gray's notes and system. I'd hoped the Titans did their job and got these guys as much info as they could, and it certainly sounds like that's the case.
Nice job by PFW to read the same Tennessean story I linked above and repackage a few of the comments about what Ayers brings to the table as 'inside information'. Mike Florio would be proud.
PFF interviews Titans safety Robert Johnson, who does a great job talking about his rough upbringing and swerving to avoid Chris Hope after the interviewer tried to throw him under the bus.
Andrew Perloff takes a look at the top senior talents for next year's draft.
The Texans are taking perhaps the best 4-3 DE in the league, and completely changing his playing weight and defensive responsibilities. And, that's why they're the Texans.
How much does Harbaugh think of Andrew Luck? He's having the Stanford QB actually teach the new 49ers coach's offense to rookie Colin Kaepernick.
The next big date sure to disappoint NFL fans is June 3rd.
Ann Killion writes about how bad of a hit the NFL is already taking in the court of public opinion, even though the league is nowhere near losing games yet. She makes a great point that the combination of suppressing proof of the impact of head injuries on NFL players, getting thrashed over benefits for veterans and now the loss after loss in the lockout make for a bad couple of years in terms of popularity for NFL owners.
