Rating the Level of Controversy in Each NFL Training Camp
Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

Now that training camps are opening up all around the NFL, there are many questions that the fans of each team want answers to.

Who are going to be the starters at key positions? Which veterans will be cut? What sleeper rookies are going to steal jobs by making final rosters?

While some teams appear to be more settled with their directions and purposes, other teams are trying to erase the bad memories of a rough 2011 season and trying to teach new squads how to win again. Some teams have a bunch of controversy brewing already, while other teams have very little to speak of.

Controversy can come in different forms.

From questionable team moves to players that have trouble controlling their actions on and off the field; from suspensions, to arrests, to players being upset with their roles or with their contracts, we are going to take a sweeping look at every NFL team and identify some of the major areas of controversial topics each needs to address at training camp.

We are going to also assign a grade for each team, which we will refer to as the Controversy Scorecard Grade. The grades will go from a low of one up to a high of 10, which would be highly controversial. The teams aren't ranked but are listed in alphabetical order.

This way you can easily enough find your favorite team, see if you agree with the topics we chose and determine whether or not you think our assigned grade is reasonable.

Keep in mind that, now that camps are open and active, there are all sorts of developments going on, with statements on team slides Wednesday being made passe by Thursday.

Things are very fluid right now as we submit this for publication.
