5 things we've learned from the first week of NFL training camps – SB Nation

Most NFL teams are one week into training camp with others hitting the day five mark. At this point, we’ve seen (or heard or read) enough to start gathering some takeaways from all the action. And we’re actually just ONE DAY AWAY FROM FOOTBALL.

You can watch the video of the interception here, which was a really nice play from the rookie.
