It wasn’t clear right up until the day the Seahawks‘ minicamp got underway last week whether or not Marshawn Lynch would be in attendance, and it sounds like that may be the case for training camp as well. Even though he’s seeking a new contract, I’d expect the running back to be present when Seattle’s training camp begins next month, but he gave a very Lynchian response when asked by Omar Ruiz of the NFL Network (Twitter link) if he’s looking forward to camp: “We’ll talk about that when that time come, boss.”
Here’s more from around the NFC:
- The Saints are expected to sign second-year linebacker Todd Davis to a contract today, reports Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). Davis went undrafted out of Sacramento State in 2013.
- While you could argue that Darrel Young‘s presence as the only fullback on the Redskins‘ roster is a good sign for Young, since he won’t have competition in training camp, Rich Tandler of RealRedskins.com wonders if Washington may simply elect not to carry a fullback on its regular-season roster.
- As David Moore of the Dallas Morning News details, Dez Bryant has shown the Cowboys that he’s worthy of a long-term investment — now it’s not a question of if he’ll sign an extension, but how much it’ll be worth. Our Rob DiRe profiled the standout receiver as an extension candidate over the weekend.
- The Giants are deeper at offensive line and loaded at cornerback, but their offseason workouts showed that tight end and linebacker are areas of potential concern, according to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com, who adds that it wouldn’t be surprising to see the team head into the regular season without a fullback.
