Zach Brown still 'under the gun' with new Titans staff

Titans linebacker Zach Brown created all kinds of positive buzz after his rookie season in 2012.

Brown's play-making reputation cooled down last season, however, while questions about his attitude and work ethic heated up. (Nashville Tennessean)

Injury-Free Jeff Schoettmer Eager For Carolina Football Campaign

CB Jabari Price leaning on technique, not athleticism

Vikings rookie cornerback beamed when asked about playing in pads first the first time on Sunday. He was known as an aggressive corner at North Carolina, where Price said he leaned on his natural ability to cover receivers. That won’t cut it on this level, and Price is well aware of that as he hones the technique head coach Mike Zimmer and secondary coach Jerry Gray are teaching the corners. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

Why North Carolina will win the Coastal

The running game: In UNC’s first seven games, it averaged 102 yards on the ground, 2.8 yards per carry and scored six rushing touchdowns. In its last six games, that average jumped to 202 yards per game, 5.1 yards per carry and the Heels scored 13 times on the ground.

Following its second bye of 2014, North Carolina will close the regular season with three consecutive games in the Triangle area, beginning with a visit from Pittsburgh on Nov. 15.

Q&A with Larry Fedora, Part IV

How concerned are you about your defensive front seven right now? Larry Fedora: "I’m concerned at positions and mainly with depth. We do have a little bit of experience on that side of the ball. I was told earlier we don’t have the name guy on the defensive front that we’ve had in the past, but we’ve got guys up there that have some experience and have played." (Inside Carolina)

Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter: "I'm a fighter"

Fourth-year veteran Bruce Carter, who by all accounts had a good off-season, plans to put his best foot forward this season. “In the NFL, man, you go through your highs and your lows,” Carter said. “I think that’s just growth. Every player is going to have to go through it and experience that. But you’ve got to learn from it. I’m going to keep pushing. I’m a fighter. I’m going to just keep going.” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Jonathan Cooper says he's ready to go. The Arizona Cardinals' left guard has not played in a game since breaking his leg in the team's third preseason game last August.

Heels hope high-octane offense leads to wins

Smart, fast, physical - that is the mantra that the 2014 North Carolina Tar Heels' football team is adopting. It's on the cover on their media guides and was even referenced as to how the team wants to play by junior quarterback Marquise Williams at Sunday's ACC Football Kickoff. "Smart, fast and physical - that's our motto and that's how we are going to play, one game at a time starting with Liberty," Williams said. (New Bern Sun Journal)

Bruce Carter: Football 'fun' again

The Dallas Cowboys switching to the 4-3 was expected to benefit Bruce Carter as much as anybody, as his speed and athleticism seemingly made him a perfect fit to play weakside linebacker in the scheme. Instead, Carter often looked lost and hesitant, playing so poorly that he was benched on multiple occasions. But Carter has a grin on his face again during training camp. (ESPN.com)

Bengals’ Giovani Bernard in a good place

In front of 1,200 fans on a practice field adjacent to Paul Brown Stadium, running back Giovani Bernard wiggled past linebacker Emmanuel Lamur during a one-on-one drill, eliciting a small cheer from those looking on. Like most second-year players, Bernard begins camp this summer a lot more sure of himself than he was as a rookie a year ago out of North Carolina. (Cincinnati Enquirer)
