Vikings seventh-round pick Jabari Price turning heads

Cornerback Jabari Price, a seventh-round pick by the Vikings in May, is impressing some important people at training camp, including coach Mike Zimmer, who broke into the NFL 20 years ago as defensive backs coach. "That's good to see any time you can hit on a seventh-round corner," Zimmer said. "That's huge. We don't know if we've got a hit yet, but he's doing a good job." (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

Shaun Draughn takes reps with Bears first team

The Chicago Bears have plenty of talented running backs in their camp this season, but one guy in particular stood out in their workout Thursday, and that’s third year pro Shaun Draughn. Draughn, whose 6-foot, 205 pound frame has to make Marc Trestman give him a serious look as a change of pace back, took a lot of reps with the first and second team during practice Thursday, and he looked excellent doing it.

Tar Heels Begin Quest For Coastal Supremacy

It felt more like late September than the start of fall camp, but the Tar Heels hit Navy Field on Friday morning inspired, focused and ready to take on a challenging slate that is loaded with opportunities. With damp turf, a gray sky and temperatures pleasant enough that sweat didn't even grace the brows of overweight scribes, the Tar Heels got right to it as soon as the clock hit 9:50 this morning. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Turner's Take: Opening Day

The Tar Heels were on the field for the first of 20 scheduled practices on Friday. Larry Fedora, complete with sunglasses and visor, stalked the field to oversee his charges. The Tar Heels are in their third year under Fedora, and every player on the roster was either recruited and signed by his staff or has two seasons and three springs in his fast-paced no-huddle offense and 4-2-5 defense under their belts.

Trade to Houston Astros a 'whirlwind' for Colin Moran

Colin Moran and his brother, Brian, exchanged text messages Wednesday afternoon, just around the time baseball's trade deadline passed. When Brian, a pitcher in the Angels organization, read his brother's club had acquired pitcher Jarred Cosart from the Astros, he passed along the news.

Catching up with Hakeem Nicks

You’re still wearing blue. Any feeling about it – I’ve been wearing blue since college. Carolina blue, Giants blue, Colts blue. I like them (shades of blue) all, but I come from Carolina blue. I’m a Tar Heel. I love the logo. I have it my house all over. (Indianapolis Colts)

Heisman Trophy banter is commonplace during August as the days melt away to the season openers over Labor Day weekend.

The sophomore tied the NCAA single-season record for punt returns for touchdown and establishing a new ACC single-season record with five. (Inside Carolina)

UNC freshman WR Jordan Fieulleteau: Inside UNC's summer workouts

As summer school and conditioning come to an end, the mood around the team heading into training camp can be described in a variety of ways. Anxious, reluctant and excited are just a few. One thing that remains common throughout the team, though, is the hunger and desire to compete and be a better team than we were last year. (Carolina Blue)

Six plotlines heading into camp

Senior Shawn Underwood and redshirt freshman Greg Webb will not on the UNC football team when camp starts. This is a big shot to the depth of the Carolina front, a unit already young and inexperienced.
