Welcome to your Football Friday edition of The Morning After Huddle! Training camp dates have been released and that means we are that much closer to the start of the season.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Training Camp dates for all 32 teams have been released. That means you can go see your favorite players catch mediocre passes with no contact, that everyone will undoubtedly overhype, on your own dime prior to the season. The full schedule is available here.
- It’s been a tough week for the NFL. News broke yesterday that we have two more greats who have passed on. Former Commanders player Brig Owens has passed away at 79. A member of Washington’s Super Bowl VII team and one of the franchise’s most prolific interceptors, Owens played 12 of his 13 years in the NFL in D.C. Also, Hugh McElhenny passed away at the age of 93. McElhenny was a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-1950s team and star halfback for the San Francisco 49ers.
- Finally, your Key Signings Roundup:
- Steelers agreed to terms with first round draft pick QB Kenny Pickett. As with all first-round contracts, the four-year deal comes with a fifth-year team option.
That is it for today! You know the drill. Wrangle the kids, grab your coffee, and join us for your Saturday edition of the Morning After Huddle.
