Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistJuly 20, 2012

A somber start to the day as I offer my thoughts and prayers to those who lost loved ones or had them hurt at the shooting in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Senseless stuff—make sure you take a minute to appreciate what you have.



Jeff Dickerson reports defensive tackle Nate Collins has been suspended for the first game of this season for violating the substance abuse policy.

Dickerson is joined by Michael Wright to discuss the defense's aim to focus on pressure, not just sack totals.



Just a few days before training camp starts and we still don't know if Jahvid Best is cleared for contact, says Anwar Richardson.

Speaking of things still unresolved prior to camp, Carlos Monarrez reports the Lions have yet to reach an agreement with rookie Riley Reiff.



Bob McGinn takes a look at the Packers' backfield.

Jason Wilde looks at the tight end group, especially Jermichael Finley.



Tom Pelissero continues his look at the Vikings' roster, landing on the wide receivers and Jerome Simpson today. 

Hold on to your hats folks—Kevin Cusick says Favre came back in 2010 for the money.
