Players such as Dak Prescott are hopeful for career seasons as questions arise about their futures with their respective teams. With the start of the regular season right around the corner, players on all 32 teams are ready to compete as teams prepare to trim their rosters from 90 players to 53.

Cardinals Believe in Murray

The Arizona Cardinals raised some eyebrows last Thursday when they announced that they had resigned former number 1 overall pick Kyler Murray to a 5-year extension worth up to $230 million.

Although they feel that Murray is worth the investment, the Cardinals made headlines when details of the contract emerged to the public. According to his contract, Murray will be required to watch film for four hours per week during the season. Fans considered this to be a bad look for the newly re-signed Murray.

In spite of the headlines, Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury praised Murray’s development and feels that he is one of a select few class of quarterbacks that could win a Super Bowl.

Cook, Vikings Excited for New System

The Minnesota Vikings are one of nine teams to bring in a new head coach for the 2022 NFL season.

After Mike Zimmer was relieved of his duties earlier this year, former Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell was named as the tenth head coach in team history.

With a new head coach and new coordinators, the Vikings are set to change their schemes drastically.

While they are unsure how they will be used in the new systems, players such as Dalvin Cook are ready to compete and eager to win football games.

Matt Rhule Uncommitted to Starting QB at the start of Training Camp

The Carolina Panthers have options in terms of who their starting quarterback will be this season.

Earlier this month, the Panthers traded a fifth-round draft pick for the former number one overall pick Baker Mayfield.

The Panthers now have two of the top three draft picks from the 2018 NFL draft in their QB room.

With Mayfield competing against Sam Darnold and third-round draft pick Matt Corral, the Panthers have a decision to make when it comes to who will be the Week 1 starter.

Head Coach Matt Rhule is looking forward to the competition during training camp. He is leaving the decision up to his players.
